    On the main Thegradecafe results page. Search for “portland.” Looks like one rejection and one acceptance for the two year program from today. maybe they are admitting: advanced standing>two year>three year>four year

    @mintypins My personal statement wasn't anything that stands out, I don't think, but I feel confident about my other essay.

    As long as none of us have heard, its good news. Waitlists are brutal. I agree with @mintypins and will just move on with plans at that point. I didn't apply anywhere else because I have a great job in the field here. I can't see myself going to George Fox and I've heard pretty mixed things about the counseling program at Lewis & Clark. And obviously, debt sounds awful considering what we earn in the social services field. @anthurium @Kgroves Thanks guys! Its next Saturday and I'm headed up to Vancouver, BC for a MUCH NEEDED vacation!

  10. MSW 2018 Waiting Game

    Thanks for the info! @mintypins and i are exhausted from refreshing our emails
  11. PSU MSW Fall 2018 Admissions Status

    I have a BA in sociology with a concentration in family studies and a minor in "Law, politics, & society" (interdisciplinary). I have worked in a few group homes for adjudicated youth (all male) -- gang & drug offenders, sex offenders. I worked as a milieu counselor in a residential treatment center for kids with severe behavioral problems and was in a CSEC all-girls unit for teens. Then I worked in a community based supportive housing program for adults with severe & persistent mental illness and volunteered at the DV crisis line at the same time. I have been working in Affordable Housing for the past two years as a Resident Services Coordinator and work at an SRO for formerly homeless women. I went through Community Health Worker training and certification last year and plan to do the Health Across the Lifespan concentration to do health promotion I burned myself out on trauma work although I still deal with it in a less direct way. I love working with women! I make pretty good money in my current position which is why I want to do the 3 year program. (Also we are hiring right now if you are in Portland...........)

    Let's distract ourselves: what did you guys @mintypins @Kgroves study for undergrad? where do you work currently if you're in the field (organization, population, type of work)? what concentration/emphasis do you plan on doing if you're admitted to PSU? I'm losing my mind checking my email and refreshing the admissions page and lurking these forums.
