2012 HSPH Statistics

We encourage applicants to pick a degree program that best fits their needs. Do not pick a degree program because it has a particularly high admit rate. Much of our applicant pool is self-selected and some degree programs can have deceivingly high admit rates.

The numbers and statistics below are for the incoming class of 2012. The updated numbers for the incoming class of 2013 will be updated in November 2013.
