  1. It should be fine. I sent my check by mail then emailed them to tell them to keep an eye for my forms in the mail and they responded they will keep an eye out for it. Received the confirmation email like 3 days later that they received my deposit
  2. I heard back 2 days after my interview at the beginning of the month. Hopefully you hear back soon!
  3. LMHCs have a difficult time getting hired for insurance purposes at clinical settings, from what I’ve heard from actual PhDs in clinical psych. LCSWs are more desirable, therefore it is a safer route to go than MHC

    Hunter College Social Work Fall 2018

    Has any one received their financial aid package from Hunter yet? I'm curious how much they offer in scholarships (if anything) and what the loan options look like. I'm 95% sure I'm going to Hunter but I want to be sure of exactly what I am getting myself into before I put down my deposit.

    Asking to read letters of rec after acceptance?

    I agree. Totally understand your curiosity though. I would highly recommend against it. Just take it as a huge compliment and make sure they know how grateful you are

    Columbia Social Work Program Fall 2018

    Declined my offer today. Hopefully that can help fill up space for those still waiting. Good luck!
  8. Not difficult at all. Just be prepared to answer potential follow up questions when answering why hunter, why social work, and your related experience. If you’re a career changer (like me), make the connection clear (if that applies) or make the moment you knew social work was a better fit clear. you also get a writing sample- a bit dense, but not difficult. my best advice is to be yourself. Sell yourself while still being yourself. I could tell my whole group was nervous, but it ended up feeling more like a conversation. Also show that you can listen to your peers and be succinct and clear in your answers! good luck!

    When did it hit you?

    It didn't really hit me until I got accepted to Columbia and NYU on the same day. Like, I grew up a poor kid, only child of a single, 16 year old mother. Was always "smart" and always did well in school without really trying. It was a proud moment when I graduated from undergrad (also the first in my family to go to any type of college!!), but it was a prouder moment when I called my mom and told her that I was accepted to an Ivy League school for graduate work. Even though I won't be attending Columbia, I'm so proud of myself. So it's hitting me now when I'm realizing the amount of loans I'll need to take out, while also quitting my job to complete a full time program. Eek!
  11. My timeline has been like this: submitted application on 2/8/18. References finally came through on 3/8, received email that my application is complete on 3/9. Received request for interview on 3/13. Interviewed 4/2. Accepted 4/4. Have seen that it really varies for most people. Some people applied in January and still haven't heard back... Good luck!

    decision time- Hunter

    I know this is a year late, but I'm in the same boat now in 2018. What did you end up doing?! I'm Struggling between NYU and Hunter (mainly because of cost). Interested in clinical, with pursuing an LCSW down the line. Any advice helps.
