Denied. Even after attending UW and applying a second time, I thought I'd have a shot. Darn. I'm lucky enough to have a fall back but good luck to the rest of you!

I declined my interview offer since I accepted a spot in another program. Hopefully this opens up an interview slot for someone who was waitlisted!

I received word that I was placed on the alternate list for interviews for the dual program (MPH/MPAS). Anyone else in the same situation or know some stats about how many people they accept for this program? 

 

Thanks in advance!

Can anyone provide information as to how many they accept into each track, particularly the on campus track? Also, how big is the school on accepting in state vs out of state?

Last I heard 30. And I don't think there is any preference.

To para3732 at least you have an acceptance to Augsburg already. Many of us on here aren't that lucky to already know we are in somewhere so you are truly blessed. Congrats on your getting into Augsburg : )
