    Cngratulations. Just wanted to know few things.
    I am going to apply for PhD in reproductive public health . I have few supplementaries in my whole career of mbbs. Does it really effect on your application and visa?
    Will be thankful to receive your replies either in my email inbox or else here.
    Thanks in advance.

    Congrats guy. I am happy for you. I also think you are right with being confident. Although luck plays a very important role but you mentioning Dr Aaga Moller shows that you have done your research well and you know what you are doing. congrats once more and see u at the top.

  • Lai

    Congratulations! This will be a good route for you as UTD can actually link you with UT Southwestern if you are planning to do residency as well.
    I am in UTD too and has MD although I am doing my masters in healthcare management.
    I’m sure you will enjoy it here…
