I have a MPH with a GPA of 3.94. I understand that my GRE is bad but given this is EOY, I am so swamped at work that I’m half dying. I would love love to get scholarships though.
My why? I am an epidemiologist who pivoted into data analytics to be able to utilize my quant skills but DA is just not how I see myself and I’d like to move back into healthcare, albeit the pharmaceutical/business side of it hence MBA.
EC: I actually volunteer to help international student qualified under certain immigration categories petition for green cards. I volunteer with my local group and volunteer with Food for the Hungry in sponsoring a child in Bolivia. In the past, I’ve worked with children of immigrants to learn ESL.
I don’t want to rewrite GRE because there’s no time to improve my scores in time to submit for Round 2. Am I reaching?
