absolutely.  It’s all in how you frame it.  I’d say this is pretty closely tied together with the program you want to go to though.  Best of luck!

I finished my MPH from the University of Texas Health Science Center a couple of years ago . . . I managed to get them to waive the practicum because of my work experience (I’m a lawyer and do lots of emergency preparedness stuff and deal with jail health issues–the main reason I went to get my mph).  My advisor signed off on the waiver.  Don’t be afraid to ask for such accomodations!

Interestingly, most of the UT program has a distance component.  And, rather than “accept” students, it only rejects those who are not qualfied.
