  1. I applied on the deadline (May 1). Anyone else? The wait is killing me!
  2. I submitted an app for the Healthline and NAMI Stronger Scholarship; will hear back in mid-June. That's it so far. It seems like funding eligible for MSW programs is rather scarce. Anyone else trying to secure outside funding?
  3. I'm doing the extended residency program, meaning year 1 I'll be doing only doctrinal classes online in the evening while doing paid work FT and then I'll do the fieldwork component in years 2 and 3. I'm not sure if I can stomach another unpaid internship. 😐

    Congrats! Were you able to secure housing yet?

    Columbia University-fall 2019

    No, I wasn't allowed to defer my scholarship-just hold my place. They said I had to be reconsidered in 2019. This time around, they gave me $0, so I opted for another program.

    I’ve just been accepted to the Woodenfish Summer 2019 Humanistic Buddhist Monastic Life Program in China!

    *e-hugs* Right there with you, but 31. Cry at least once a week. And for Indian girls in my situation, the stigma is real. People assume that you're "defective".

    FLAS 2018/2019

    Does anyone know when Columbia FLAS applicants would hear back? I applied by the 2/26 deadline.
  15. I withdrew because they offered me zero funding, unfortunately. Good luck to those waiting!
