  1. What's completely false for you may be completely true for me. It's all a matter of perspective.
  2. Started my internship last week. It's keeping me very busy, but I love it.

  3. I can't believe spring semester starts on Tuesday. Break was not nearly long enough. Not even close.

      We also start Tuesday. I haven't even recovered from my finals that ended December 15th. :(

      Wow, I start on the 20th. I'm planning these last few days of freedom. Good luck, have a wonderful semester.

      Jealous. Very, very jealous. I haven't recovered yet either.

  4. I transferred twice. The first time, after my first semester as a freshman. The second time, as a rising junior beginning my third year of college. I've never had any negative repercussions from transferring. But I would suggest you stay were you are.
  5. Tulane MSW Fall 2015

    You can ask for an extension if you need more time to decide. They extended their app deadline like three times last year, so I wouldn't worry about it.
  6. PSLF - Public Student Loan Forgiveness

    Weird considering nobody she knows is on any kind of repayment plan other than IBR. Perhaps she was having a brain fart that day, but it didn't sound like it.
  7. MSW stat check in - what are you applying with?

    If it makes anyone sleep easier at night, I applied with an undergrad GPA of 2.4 and a grad school GPA of 3.83 and got into all but one of the seven schools I applied to. Ivy included. I also managed to get pretty hefty scholarships at three of those schools. I didn't even send my [good] MAT scores, I probably would have, had I had more money. A strong application package and good interview skills go a long way in terms of MSW addmitance. Much more so than blah undergrad GPAs. Especially if a chunk of time has gone by since graduation.
  8. PSLF - Public Student Loan Forgiveness

    She said it was hard to get to due to client population. She said that you have to be working for an agency that sees a certain percentage of medicaid enrollees. She didn't really get into much detail, she just said it's very hard to qualify and not to bank on it. I do agree that, according to the website at least, it seems very easy to qualify. I do know someone who qualified as a nurse anesthesiologist, so who knows. I don't know if he's enrolled yet or if it ever came to fruition.
  9. Sorry, my assignment will have to be late. I'm NOT doing anymore work today. 12 hours is enough.

  10. MSW/JD Programs

    Someone in my cohort is doing it - she did her first year of law school last year and is in her first year of the MSW program now. Beyond that, I can't really speak to it, other than I contemplated it myself, but was talked out of law by my attorney stepmother.
  11. PSLF - Public Student Loan Forgiveness

    PSLF is very hard to get, apparently. One of my professors was talking about it in class this week and she said that nobody in her cohort was able to get it. Not saying that was she said is gospel, but do have a back up plan.
  12. Spent 10 hours writing in a coffe shop today. It's looking like a repeat performance will like be happening on Thursday.

      And by coffe, I mean coffee. It's been a long day.

  13. Class issue

    I have enountered a few people, professors and students alike, who are pretty closed when it comes to accepting the opinions of others. The "cheap shot" has happened as well. Since I tend to be a little more conservative than the average bear in the profession, I know that every time I open my mouth in class I'm exposing myself to being sniped by a classmate. Sometimes it's delivered with some tact, other times it's not. I've learned to pick my battles. I think you should participate enough to get your participation grade, but for your own sake, keep it less controversial if possible, since it seems to bother you. You've already approached the professor outside of class. I don't think emailing him to discuss the situation again would get you very far. Perhaps try to view this as an isolated incident and hope that your classmates will be less inclined to cheap shot you in the future. You do have the right to defend yourself if they do.
  14. Venting Thread- Vent about anything.

    I am miserable. I really hope next semester is better than this one.
  15. Come on, LSU! HOLD ON 20 MORE SECONDS.
