Hunter College City of NY

Hi all,

I am about to finish up my personal statement and apply to Hunter College for their MSW program.

Has anyone else applied there? Have you heard a decision yet?

Good luck to all who apply!

My app was completed 1/25. I am also very curious as to when we will hear back. Most other NYC schools have begun to send out responses, and are requesting a down payment 4 weeks from the day of acceptance. Feel like I will need to save a seat somewhere before hearing back from Hunter.

I heard that people start hearing back mid feb but you have to have an interview and then may not hear back for another month!

My online profile changed to "pending interview." Anyone else see this change? No emails or updates from the school as of yet...

Did you guys have issues uploading your transcripts? It says they are uploaded, but then when I look at my application after submitting it, it says they are not received. I emailed them, but haven't heard back yet. I got it all in by the 5th, but now I'm not sure if it all went through. :(

I didn't experience any issues. Maybe try changing the format of the document?

I applied last month. It seems like in past years we won't hear about group interviews until March or April.

I was wondering if anyone knew anything about graduate assistantships. Are we able to find and apply to them before we are accepted?

No! I'm dyin' over here! I think I will have to ask Fordham for an extension on the decision deadline so I can wait to see if Hunter wants me to interview. I just wanna know!!

hey guys!

so just for a general timeline - 

my application was officially completed and submitted on January 9th. They reached out to me via e-mail for an interview on January 27th - I registered for January 31st.

Interview was fairly simple. there was 1 hypothetical question about what you would do in this situation - no right or wrong answer, just use your best judgement. you will have to give a writing sample at the end of the interview (for whatever reason, i'm not sure). common questions were also about why your specific concentration (clinical, community organization, etc.) and background information. 

I received my acceptance on February 7th. So all in all, from submission to acceptance, it took about 4 weeks. 

i'm stuck between columbia versus silberman but i'm probably going to silberman because it's cheaper tuition lol.

I had issues with this and called them several times. They knew it was an issue and were manually checking uploads. If you can see the docs on your end, you should be fine. Today my application finally showed up as complete so you may want to check again. Good luck!

I actually got an email back a few days after I made that post, and they manually checked it after that. Thanks!
