I did the program for 1 semester (got 3 A+) but withdrew because the concentration I was looking for was much more diluted than from what I was told and the majority of the courses were offered at another campus..not where I was taking them. I have two interviews coming up...should I bring up this matter...or not....am I screwed....anybody ever been in a similar situation? Thanks!!!

totally acceptable to talk about it or even bring it up during an interview. hell, mention it in your personal statement just to get it out there. use it as a 'learned experience'

Hey, you aced the classes, that earns you the right to say whatever you want about them. Adcoms will probably view this as an act of boldness and independence. Be sure to tag a "learned lesson" to the experience and you're gold! Good luck.

Personally, I believe if your interviewer does not bring it up as a negative, neither should you. I think during your interview you should focus on as much positive and uplifting things as possible. Of course, unless you believe that your incomplete MPH is vitally important to your ability to complete your medical education. Best wishes :)
