    NYU

    Make sure you write a great personal statement! Get involved (community service), pretty much just beef up your resume in the mean time. I suggest applying early. I applied early and heard back within a week. Also, be patient and don't stress too much! I am going into adv standing thru NYU this Fall, super excited!

    NYC Schools

    If I end up liking NYC, then I will come back for the rest of my items. lol Plato's Closet and style encore, my places to go when cleaning out my closet. Then whatever I can't sell, I drop off at my local shelters/centers.

    Columbia Social Work Program Fall 2018

    You can probably explain circumstances and try to apply for fellowships or assistantships. If you are taking off a year, I highly suggest looking into doing City Year or another Americorp program. Certain schools will discount your tuition heavily for doing one of those programs. I have been throwing this suggestion out to many people because it is definitely a good option to look into.

    Luckily, a round trip flight from my home state is around $118. Getting there isn't an issue, more so looking for a place. I am only taking the essentials with me. I'm leaving most of my items from my current apt in a storage.

    Columbia Social Work Program Fall 2018

    Did you receive any offers from other schools. From the CSSW Facebook page, many people asked them to match their scholarship for another school.

    Yes, about a week. They may rush yours since it is getting closer to the end of the school year.

    Columbia Social Work Program Fall 2018

    I applied back in Nov and didn't get that email until March 1st, got accepted the 22nd. It truly just depends. Columbia's process seems to be all over the place, so no way to truly know anything at this point.

    Yes the award letter and financial aid package is the same. I received mine today as well.

    Where else have you applied? I know NYU, Fordham, and a few other places are still accepting applications.

    NYU

    I chose NYU due to the program and it being more clinical based. Also, they were more helpful and provided steady communication during the application process. For me, that says a lot about a program and how they treat their students. Columbia kept giving people the runaround and just overall not a good experience. I thought I would have heard back from them back in Jan or Feb since I applied in Nov. NYU has gone out there way to connect me with alumni from my current school that currently attend Silver. Have you visited both schools? A visit can make or break a decision.
