3 Year Programs: Public Health/ Global Scholars
I applied to both the Public Health and Global Scholars program, and was admitted to the public health one. I thought this was strange given that I used practically the same essay for both (actually written for the IR one initially!), but it is what it is, and now I am looking into the public health program. All of my schools except for University of Rochester are tiny, undergrad-only LAC's, and American would initially be a step outside of my comfort zone. However, I can certainly see myself adapting quickly and really enjoying city life- I live between Boston and NYC and truly enjoy visiting both fairly frequently, so although it would be a change it wouldn't be "shocking". My question is, what do current students/alums/other applicants know about this program? Yes, it's a public health BA/BS in 3 years with study abroad, but what other opportunities does it provide? Obviously the DC location is a plus for internships, but does this program add anything one couldn't get at SIS/COAS? Anyone else considering this program out there on CC?
