  1. I think a lot of these responses to the original question are fairly self-righteous. The poster has every reason to be concerned if she's been informed her clients have displayed physical aggression. Being a good social worker doesn't mean taking on a martyr complex and entering blindly into potentially dangerous situations. OP, if the risk feels unacceptable to you (discounting your own personal biases, which I can't possibly know), then you need to sit down with your supervisor and make your concerns known. Maybe there's a way to work around this limitation, maybe not. But people get hurt wh
  2. I got $3000 work/study per year at UMich... not enough to sway my decision! This education is going to put me so far into debt I don't want to think about it.
  3. Hiclub - no reason to read into it. If you haven't heard yet then you're still in the running!
  4. Yep, that's what I figured. I'm thinking of it as a sort of "wait list" situation... oh, well.
  5. No! This wait is driving me crazy. Whatever the result, I just want to hear back.
  6. I got accepted to Smith today! I was wait-listed in early February, and they informed me they'd have a final decision by the end of March. I didn't expect to hear back so early. Now it's between U of Michigan and Smith... still waiting to hear back from Columbia.
  7. Hiclub, I'm right there with you. I haven't been notified yet either, and I'm thinking this is not a good sign. Congratulations to all those who were accepted!
  8. This is very helpful, thank you! It also makes me feel a lot better about the amount of debt I'm expecting to take on.
  9. Given that social worker salaries seem to vary from about $40,000 to, eventually, about $80,000, how much debt would you consider taking on for an MSW program? My circumstances are that I don't have any debt from undergraduate. I have a decent amount in savings, plus an Americorps education award, that would allow me to pay for the first year of a private program. However, I would be taking out loans for the second year, and, factoring in living expenses, this could well be about $50-60,000. Would you consider this too much? What would be the upper limit for you when it comes to studen
  10. Weirdly I've received an e-mail but no notification on WA. Hmm...
  11. I didn't see a thread started for Columba in NYC yet! Anyone else apply? I submitted my application Dec. 1st. I have my fingers crossed for this one.
  12. Thanks guys! I submitted my applications for both U of M and Columbia on Dec. 1st. I am planning to specialize in Interpersonal Practice. I prefer Columbia's program because it offers 3 days of fieldwork per week, versus just 2 at U of M. I am also a native New Yorker and I plan to stay in the northeast long term (I've been living in California this past year and miss home!), so Columbia would make more sense. That is, if I am accepted! Also, congrats on your acceptance, nightwolf! Boston is a great place.
