Hello, I've applied to a couple of MPH programs, a couple of prestigious name schools and some state schools. I went to a private institution for college so I am trying to go to a school that is the best option financially. For example, GW is the most expensive school according to statistics, while if I go to SUNY Downstate, it would be very cheap because I am a NY resident. My future goals is to practice law in public health field... Medicine is also an option. .. I am definitely interested in public health however, and feel that mph school will help me steer my future ambitions. What are your thoughts? What is more important? Earning the degree (whatever school that may be), or earning it at a "prestigious" school?
