I had a follow up regarding the LOR, I saw in the portal, there is a place to upload the LOR, but you mention that my references upload it. Am I misunderstanding something? Thank you l.

Follow up to Kirby's question - for MPH program personal statements, is it preferred for students to express interest in a specific concentration (i.e. Child and Adolescent Health) versus pursuing a customized program of study?
Livy Lewis
34:31
Is it correct that the Dec. 1 deadline for Bloomberg Fellows Program applications is the *final* deadline rather than preferred?
Marie Diener-West

@Livy, that is correct - thank you.

Thank you for arranging this informative session. I had a question - since I am also waiting for two letters on the SOPHAS portal, may I submit the whole application altogether by Dec 10th? Or will the delay have an impact on application?
