We asked MPH@GW students for any helpful advice they would give to future applicants. Adrienne Buggs, a current MPH@GW student, responded:

“I would tell them to hurry up and get their application submitted.
As potential applicants begin the process of selecting schools, they will quickly find that the MPH@GW program is rapidly setting the standard for all other MPH programs, online or otherwise.”
