  1. Hi everyone, I have my BSW and I'm earning my MSW at CSUSM. Sadly I found out that they are finally having a 1 year program this fall. So I'm at a crossroads as I am in their 2 year program going into my second semester. Has anyone attempted to test out of classes? if so how difficult were the exams? I'm at a loss for what to do. If I try and apply to the 1 year program I'd save $8,000, but I do not know if I would get in. Honestly part of me is considering just taking this semester off and going to San Diego State because it's so much cheaper. help! I need advice.
  2. Anyone already through their first year at CSUSM? I have some questions about the classes. Thanks!
  3. Hi everyone! I got my BSW at Humboldt State University and I'm going to CSU San Marcos in the fall. I just emailed the head of the social work department asking if I can possibly test out of or show proof that I took the same classes I would be taking this fall. Has anyone on here ever been able to do this? If so what did you have to do?
  4. Hey everyone, so I just had my interview for my internship today. They asked for references which caught me off guard because I had interviewed for another placement and they didn't. The woman made it sound as if there were other people competing for the internship spot. I would think that a CSU would only have the right number of people interviewing for the position. Is this normal? I'm anxious now.
  5. Anyone know of any reputable websites to apply to scholarships? i've heard of scholarship points but I feel like they're a scam. Thanks!
  6. So happy to announce I got accepted to CSUSM!
  7. Thank you! have you heard back from CSUSM? Cool to see another person from the San Diego area wanting to go to CSUSM
  8. That's crazy especially if you didn't tell them if you wanted to apply to the 2 year program. What sucks for me is this is the only school I applied to because I live in north county in San Diego with my mom and didn't want to deal with commuting to SDSU. All of this is giving me a really bad impression. And I'm at a loss of what to do...
  9. Yea I was very surprised at how they dealt with the whole situation. It was very frustrating being told so many different dates and waiting to hear back just to be told it was cancelled. I didn't even know they only needed 30 applicants. Wow..... What I think is ridiculous is that they obviously knew when they closed the applications that they didn't have enough applicants for their 3 year program. Why it took them so long to tell us is beyond me.
  10. So I finally heard back from CSUSM. After being told by numerous staff for their MSW program that I would hear back in early March, then late March, and now April. They WONT be having their 3 year program that I applied to, they said there weren't enough applicants. So now I decided to apply to their 2 year program instead considering they opened up another cohort. Hoping to hear back in around 2 weeks! My Stats: Bachelor's in Social Work from Humboldt State University GPA: 3.5 I have 9 months of experience working at a homeless shelter for teens, a years worth of experience working at a group home for teens/pregnant and parenting teens, 9 months working as a Special Education Aide in a K-3 Mod-Severe classroom, 6 months (and still currently working) at a rehab for adults struggling with alcohol/drug addiction. Sadly I forgot to add my community college transcript ( I took a class over the summer one year) so I was taken out of the priority pool
  11. If you get into CSUSM let me know, that's where I applied
  12. Anybody heard from any CSU's yet? I applied to CSU San marcos and haven't hear anything. They said I should hear by the end of the month....my anxiety is killing me! lol
  13. Anyone heard anything? i just e-mailed them because on their website it says that the application is closed and the cohort is full. They responded and said that I would hear back by the end of the month.
  14. I just e-mailed them and they said I would hear by the end of the month. I feel like that's not a good sign :/
