  1. "Waiting" - The Playlist

    This thread is heavily inspired by a thread from last application season, but I thought I'd give re-birth to the idea of using music to obsess about cope with the waiting period. I'll start with a combination of songs from last application season and a few of my personal additions: Sitting, Waiting, Wishing - Jack Johnson This is The Day - The The Are We the Waiting - Green Day Survivor - Destiny's Child Stronger - Kelly Clarkson Under Pressure - Queen Don't Stop Believin' - Journey Be OK - Ingrid Michaelson Everything's Alright - Jesus Christ Superstar There is Life Outside Your Apartment - Avenue Q The Musical I'm Calm - Jack Gilford Take a Chance on Me - Abba Boulevard of Broken Dreams - Green Day Maneater - Daryl Hall I'm a Believer - The Monkees This is Your Life - Dropkick Murphys Don't Stop Me Now - Queen You Make My Dreams - Daryl Hall
  2. interested in public policy

    Oh and I almost forgot, most of the Social Policy & Evaluation MSW concentrations at UMICH are involved in research (vs direct practice).
  3. interested in public policy

    The University of Michigan has a joint masters program in Social Work and Public Policy. I am a current MSW student at UMICH with a focus on Social Policy & Evaluation. Feel free to message me if you have any specific questions about the program.
  4. Things You Won't Miss

    For what it's worth, I can definitely relate to your experiences. My undergraduate is the love child of "Jersey Shore" and "FOX News."
  5. Ann Arbor, MI

    Which bank is generally recommended for checking and savings? I noticed last summer that there are no Wells Fargo banks/atms in the state. Would you recommend TCF simply because it's linked to the M-Card? Thanks
  6. UMICH MSW Funding

    Has anyone received their funding package from the UMICH MSW program?
  7. Official Financial Aid Award Notice

    How long does it take for the financial aid award letter to arrive after you've been officially accepted into a program? Do programs expect you to accept an offer without knowing whether or not you will receive financial aid? - Allport
  8. 1-Year MA Psychology Programs

    I think it depends on where you want to complete your Ph.D. If you want to complete your Ph.D. at the same university as your M.A., it might be feasible and you'd likely just switch degree types.

  11. thanks which practice method/area did you apply for? ...I applied for community organization (method) and community and social systems (area)
  12. Who hasn't gotten accepted anywhere yet?

    Unfortunately I don't remember the exact wording, but the letter said someone along the lines of 'you have been accepted to the MSW program.' The program sent an email approx. two weeks after receiving the official letter asking whether or not I was interested in the offer.
  13. Who hasn't gotten accepted anywhere yet?

    I almost match you. I have 15 official rejections, 1 unofficial rejection, 1 waitlist, and 1 unknown. However, I have been offered a MSW degree instead of a joint MSW/Psychology Ph.D. degree at one program.
  14. UMass Peace and Violence

    umass is currently on spring break until 3/22 which could possibly delay notifications.
