MPH - How do you find out the profiles for admission?

<p>My kid is considering pursuing a Masters in Public Health. Currently majoring in Health Care Admin and Policy, with a 3.8 in her major and a 3.6 overall, 800+ hours volunteering at a hospital and nursing home, an internship with a Fortune 500 healthcare company, an internship with a US Congressman, and on the local speaker's panel for a national charity. She's VERY worried about the GRE since she isn't strong in math (very right-brained). She would possibly be applying to Carnegie Mellon and Pitt's programs, but is researching other schools as well.</p>

<p>Is there a site that shows the profiles for students admitted into Masters Programs at various schools?</p>

<p>1) Very few schools publish their graduate admissions profiles.
2) The GRE isn't that big a deal (and the math is 10th grade anyway)</p>

<p>What you want to do is suggest to your daughter that she should contact the schools she's interested in and simply ask. She should also be getting advice from her current departmental advisor(s) and professors. Be aware that graduate admissions is very different from undergrad and things like volunteer hours and other extracurricular activities are irrelevant unless <em>directly</em> related to the intended field. Take a look at the "Graduate School Admissions 101" thread - just the first couple pages is enough.</p>

<p>Now to set your mind at ease, The University of Minnesota is one of the few schools that publishes admissions data. their Health Services, Policy, and Administration information is here:</p>

<p>The</a> Graduate School : University of Minnesota : Program Reports</p>

<p>ETS provides some information as well:</p>

<p>Thank you very much! This is very helpful information.</p>

<p>the profile of MPH's would be of little value to you. Take the big two, for example: both Hopkins and Harvard accept many current, experienced health care professionals into their MPH programs (doctors, nurses, dentists), so a comparison to a current undergrad just doesn't make sense. However, those same two do take a lot of current undergrads into thier non-MPH grad programs, such as a M.S. in Biostat or Epidemiology.</p>

<p>Do ask individual schools about the GRE, however. Back in the dark ages, one PH school I knew had a hard cutoff for the math score. They claimed that their Biostat course was so tough, it required better than average math skills.</p>
