Admissions

Admissions Blog

It’s hard to believe, but our admissions blog is two years old!

That’s two years of application tips, admissions reminders, micro campus tours, staff profiles, Baltimore bragging and general silliness by yours truly.

Thank you for following!

As you may have noticed, our mantra this application cycle is
Know Your Program!

To some, that sounds silly. Maybe even juvenile. Of course you know your program!

But here’s the thing--not everyone does.

We offer more degrees from more departments than any other school of public health. It’s wonderful! There are so many opportunities! But it’s also a little confusing.

A handful of people apply to the wrong program every year. In the past we were often able to help them, but things are different this year.

Our Master of Public Health now uses a separate application from our eight other public health degrees. And while the MPH is an amazing program, not everyone is eligible nor is it always the best fit. If you apply to the MPH by mistake, we won’t be able to fix it on the backend.

So, please ask questions. Review our website. Read the Prospectus. Come to Open House. Follow this blog.

And KNOW YOUR PROGRAM.

“The Ins and Outs of Applying
to the Bloomberg School”

Noon, Friday, September 26, 2014

During this session, admissions representatives will discuss our many academic programs and which of those programs use which application. Participants will have a chance to ask questions and our staff will do their best to answer. The session will be recorded and later posted to our website.

For more on our virtual sessions – including how to attend or view a previously recorded session – visit our website.

See you online!

As individuals who live, work, study and play in this city, we’re often frustrated by the image of Baltimore in the media.

It’s true, like many large cities, we struggle with issues surrounding poverty, drugs and crime. But Baltimore is more than just those things. We’re a city of neighborhoods, history, culture and yes, charm.

The video below has been circulating on social media. I think it shows a different view of Baltimore. See what you think. . .

We are traveling in earnest this month, with the hope of meeting as many of you as possible.

There's one event in particular, I'd like to point out:

This is Public Health

This event is hosted by the Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health and will provide attendees the chance to meet with a number of CEPH-accredited schools of public health.

Best of all, it’s free for prospective students. Just register here.

Hope to see you in New York!
