    No idea, but I assume you'll find out before me because I don't plan on paying the deposit until next week, so if you wouldn't mind reporting back here when you find out, that'd be awesome!

    MSW Interview Attire

    I'm confused. Why would your attire be different for an academic vs. professional program?

    NYU vs. Fordham vs. Columbia MSW program?

    Gotcha. I would probably go to NYU then, they have a good clinical reputation and it's always best to minimize debt in a field that doesn't pay a ton like social work. However, if there's not a substantial difference, it might make sense to go to Columbia because of the Ivy League factor/name recognition in places other than NY. Do you plan to stay in the area after graduation? Also, congratulations on being admitted to so many great schools!

    Are you trying to get into clinical or macro work? How much did each school offer you in scholarship?

    Hey, random question, when you submitted your enrollment deposit, what were the options for payment? Just wondering if I will be able to pay it with a credit card...

    Congrats, that’s amazing!

    Gotcha! I think 18k per year is pretty good for them tbh. I’ve never seen anything higher than that on here. It’s definitely still a lot of money though. Good luck with all your future plans!

    I’m so confused... I think you intended this for @future_LCSW?

    Wait, I'm so confused, I thought Advanced Standing was one year? Unless there is a part-time online program that I'm unaware of?

    This is just my opinion so please take it with a grain of salt, but Pittsburgh is absolutely not worth paying extra money for. Especially if you have to take out loans to be able to afford it. I moved here from VA in August and things are a little better now but at first, I really struggled. It probably would have been better if I had had grad school to add some structure to my life, but even so, I think it still would have been hard. It's cold, it's ugly, and it feels very foreign to me even though I am only about 5 1/2 hours from the place where I grew up. If you were talking about NYC or some other place on the East Coast I'd say go for it, but Pittsburgh? I wouldn't. I'm sorry to say this and obviously you should wait until your visit to make up your mind about it - maybe you'll love it, or the program will be worth it! But If I could do it all over again, I absolutely would not move here.

    No, I moved here last August so I should qualify for in-state tuition. It would be more for personal reasons.

    Not sure whether it's an official waitlist but imho that probably means that they're waiting to see how many people accept their offer before they offer you a spot. I'm sorry it's not the news you were hoping for.
