  1. I was accepted last week. They've quickly become one of my top contenders!
  2. I submitted my application November 1, and I haven't heard anything.
  3. Ah, I understand. Thanks for the clarification!!
  4. Thanks for your reply! I'm not sure what you mean, working in this with my potential supervisor? I'm not going to be doing much, if any, research while pursuing an MSW as far as I've read so far. Can you elaborate? Thanks for the tip on the book! I had seen it on another thread here, but I didn't know how relevant it is today. I just made my way through 101 Careers in Social Work, and it definitely helped me think about the SW profession in a better way.
  5. Hello all, I have recently found this forum, and it has been so helpful! I am a currently serving Peace Corps Volunteer, and I'm starting to get things together to apply for Fall 2018 MSW. I have chosen my top ten schools, which I can give you if interested, and now I'm starting to work on my personal statement. I have some questions: -How early is too early to send in an application? I am shooting for August/September to start the online applications, starting on my personal statements next week. -What unusual tips do you have for the personal statement? I've read so much, including the threads here, but do you have anything to add? -Should the issues essay be related to the field that you want to go into? Honestly although I'm quite interested in helping people, I'm not well versed in the research behind social issues. I was a psychology major in university, but I have recently changed my mind on my career. Thus is definitely the most intimidating part of the applications for me, although not every school requires it. I'm sure I have more, but I can't think of any at the moment. Thanks in advance!!
  6. I had not known about this. That is for bringing it up! I worry, though, that it's from 2005. Have you read it and found it useful?
