    Which MSW program to pick?

    Oh just an add on, if the state school has a good rep, and you’re looking to work in the area that’s great, you can get your field placements in orgs you might be interested in for employment. And I’ve found the local schools rep can actually go farther locally b/c employers have a frame of reference of the students that come out of the program.

    Which MSW program to pick?

    I was dealing with this predicament, and ended up choosing the state school! Funnily enough it felt like they were more connected to the missions of social justice and listening to the people than the big name schools, and I still have opportunities to do research with faculty if I want to. I’ll also have sooooo much less debt. I’d also consider where you want to practice. If the prestigious schools are in a different state than that, you’ll be learning about different policies and issues, dif. Demographics. And if you’re pursuing licensure it’s good to be in the state you want to get licensed in.

    MSW FALL 2019 CSUN, CSUF, SDSU, CSUSM

    Hey, so sorry I'm just getting back to this. It was good, a bit unique. It's a group interview with 6-8 people. There's a group task/problem-solving question, and a single individual question that you're randomly assigned. There's also a little writing assignment, but it doesn't seem to hold much weight in the interview.

    Thanks @MSWDUDE19! I applied to the 2-year on campus program. It’s definitely one of my tops! I’m also seriously considering Columbia & NYU but cost is super high. I know social work faculty at CSUN and I could probably do research with them which is a great opportunity.

    Hunter vs NYU for MSW?

    As long as your school is accredited you’re on the path for private practice. From what I hear your field placements matter most as far as your msw goes, on the path to licensure. A good field supervisor will be a reference for you to get jobs and work toward your hours for LCSW post grad.

    Hunter vs NYU for MSW?

    Not a student at either, but accepted to NYU, did not apply to Hunter. From what NYU students seem to say, it’s a split between the two. If you want a clinically intensive program, NYU is probably a good choice. If cost is a major issue Hunter is a great program, equally as well regarded in the city. Field placements are pretty identical from what I hear, same opportunities.

    Columbia University MSW Fall 2019

    Did not apply for anything, just received an email regarding financial aid and it showed I had a 15k scholarship along with the loans I could take out.

    Columbia University MSW Fall 2019

    Received my financial aid info today, 15k a year scholarship. Not bad, but even with the scholarship it’s still the most expensive program on my list. 😕
