CSUF MSW Fall 2017

107 posts in this topic

Hi everyone! 

I'm wondering if anyone has had any updates on their application status? I submitted my application for the Flex program on 1/19/17. I called yesterday to ask what the notification process is like and a woman in the MSW Dept. told me that they "don't know" and that some years it takes a month and some years it takes three months. She did say that the next step would be to get called for an interview.

My Application Status still says "Thank you for applying to Cal State Fullerton.  We have received your application.  No admission decision has been made at this time"

Has anyone (2-year or Flex) heard anything or heard anything different than what she mentioned?

Let me know!

Hello, I also applied in January. The application status on student portal says "your application file has been sent to the department for graduate review. If you have any questions please contact the department." I haven't heard anything back either though.

That is so interesting that the status in our portals would say different things! I'm on the edge of my seat checking for any possible change in the status daily.

Oh! One more question- Have you (or anyone) also been receiving the e-mails about financial aid and scholarships from Luis Molina?

Haven't heard anything back either. I only applied to csuf and csudh. I got accepted to csudh but csuf is closer and I finished my bachelor there so I'm hoping for some news soon ...This waiting thing is so annoying lol

I applied to csuf in November so should have heard something by now...

They must have had a million applications! I am so surprised no one has heard yet. It's definitely annoying!

Good luck Leslie! I am really upset because I believe I have a great shot at the program, but I didn't receive an email :( 

All I can hope for now is a second wave of emails that includes me! Does anyone know if they send out a second round of emails?

Edit: I didn't realize you were applying for the flex program, I wonder what the situation is for the full-time program.. perhaps I will call in later today

When did you apply? I don't think they're done reviewing them all...

I applied sometime in late January. I just called the Social Work department a couple times and didn't get through to anyone, so I had to leave a message

yeah, I turned in my 3 letters of recommendation, I actually had to turn my letters in person because for some reason I was not able to send out the online form to my references.

Your application file has been sent to the department for graduate review.  If you have questions, please contact the department.  Graduate program contact information can be found at http://www.fullerton.edu/graduate/.

 

Edit: 3:23 PM, just checked my email inbox and found an email from the MSW department saying they uploaded the two physical letters of recommendation that I gave to them when I originally applied.

It seems like neither of our applications have been reviewed yet.. My status says the same thing.

Hi everyone! 

I want to share with you that I did have the interview on Monday morning at 9am with Kelly Segovia, the Admissions Coordinator for the MSW department. I was surprised that it was not a panel interview. For the most part, the interview was fairly easy. She asked me questions like "Why did you choose social work?" and "What is a population that you think might be difficult to work with" (I said teen moms have been difficult to work with in a parent education setting but shared my reflections about my own biases and expectations and then explained the resources I used to overcome that challenge). She then basically asked me if I had any questions for her and was pretty detailed with me about the timeline for the program. I asked her what she felt she liked best about the program and she said that it was the community that the students form. I told her how much I would value that community too. The whole thing lasted half an hour.

At the end, she ended it with "You should hear from us within a week or probably less than a week." and "We would be really lucky to have you." So, all in all it went very well! and was a great experience. I definitely felt really good leaving and like I got this in the bag However - I have not received an e-mail yet (it's Thursday afternoon) and believe me, I have been checking my application status and refreshing my e-mail profusely since. Nothing is ever certain but I'm keeping all of my fingers and toes crossed that the last couple of things that she said mean an acceptance e-mail is coming.
