    UW Seattle MSW Fall 2019

    I was admitted to the Day program on 3/15. I'm deciding between UW and BU! In my email it said to keep an eye out for scholarships... has anyone heard anything from UW about scholarship, yet?

    U of Illinois, Chicago MSW, 2019

    I'm using grad school as an opportunity to move out of state, and I applied to full-time programs only. I used each programs estimated budget documents to get an idea of what it might cost me to attend (tuition & everything else). UIC tuition for out-of-state is $34,706 (per year), plus the cost of living (rent, books & supplies, medical insurance, etc) which they've estimated at about $16,500 (per year). So for a 2 year program, that's $102,412. Now I know that isn't exact, as some of the estimates can fluctuate greatly (personal expenses, rent, etc. are really variable) depending on the person/situation, but I know that just tuition will be at least $69k (not accounting for possible tuition increases during the 2nd year of grad school) and I'm sure rent for 2 years in Chicago will be at least $10k.

    I was only offered loans as well. It's not making me have cold feet - I've been working for a few years and know this is the path I want to take. I am expecting at least $80k in loans by the end of it, and while it does cause a lot of stress and anxiety to think about, I know it's what I need to do in order to pursue the career path that I want. It's definitely a huge investment, but I'm hoping it's worth it...

    I did not receive any scholarships from UIC and I have at least 2 other options lined up for grad school... UIC is actually the most expensive option for me. That's why I'm really waiting on doing the field placement process, because right now, I don't see myself ending up there. It's good to know that, once I hear back from the last program that I applied to, if I decide to do UIC the field placement will at least move quickly.

    Mine said the same thing. It sounds to me like that means we have to find alternate forms of scholarship/funding.

    MSW Fall 2019 Decisions!!!

    We have a BU thread here. Some people have said that they'd hear back by the end of the day tomorrow. I talked to their admissions office today and they told me I'd hear by the end of the month (next Friday). So, who really knows...

    BU MSW Fall 2019

    Hi again, everyone! I applied to BU on 12/1 (regular, full-time, on-campus) and called their admissions office yesterday to ask for a general timeline of when I'd hear back, as U of M is waiting on my enrollment deposit (due 3/15) and I don't want to pay the $300 if I don't have to... They told me that I'd know by the end of the month (so next Friday). I see that others have heard that they'll receive a decision by end of day tomorrow... I'm hoping this doesn't mean I'll hear bad news...

    UW Seattle MSW Fall 2019

    Hi everyone! Also waiting to hear from UW... just found out from UM that I was admitted on 2/7, but still very nervous about UW... hoping you all hear good news soon!

    U of Illinois, Chicago MSW, 2019

    Hi everyone! I was admitted to UIC on 1/16, paid my enrollment deposit by 1/29 (due date) and received information about starting the field placement process on 2/4. I need scholarships so I paid the enrollment deposit and am finishing up their scholarship application (due by 2/15), but am still waiting on other programs, so I'm not sure I'll end up at UIC. Has anyone started the field placement process yet? If I end up at UIC, I don't want to start this too late for fear of missing out on my preferred placement, but I don't really know how long the process will take and don't want to secure a placement only to cancel my enrollment/pull out of placement in the end... Any advice would be greatly appreciated!! P.S. I was admitted to UM on 2/7 and am waiting to hear back from UW and BU still... I'm using this next step in life to also move away, so I likely won't accept UM and am hoping for either UW or BU... fingers crossed!
