    Columbia University MSW Fall 2019

    Right. I took a narrow approach as well (gender-based violence in the South Asian American community).

    Ahh you're right. The admissions office was understaffed last year.

    Do we have any say/choice regarding field placements? Can we state our preferences for particular agencies/orgs?

    When did you find out about the merit based scholarships thru the school? I can't find such info on the website.

    Fall 2019 Applications

    I graduated in 2017, registered for the bar, and have been working in a JD required position. I did write an addendum addressing medical reasons for the application. To give some context, law school is graded on a forced curve. At my school, the median was set to a 2.9/3.0ish, meaning that 50% of the class had a 3.0+ GPA and 50% class fell below. 2.87 looks bad to someone who's not familiar with law school grading systems, but based on the forced curve, I'm in the middle 50% of the class. So not remarkable, but not bottom of the barrel either. Are MSW programs graded on a forced curve?
