    First of all, congratulations! This is so exciting for you!
    Health and mental health are undeniably related. I think you'll find it particularly meaningful to gain that new experience and perspective, coming from a background of working in MH. Have you considered talking to the program's field coordinator to see if your next field placement might be more in line with your hope to work in MH?

    Hi team! First, thank you all for this thread - it's been so nice to feel in community a bit with you all in this process!
    I'm wondering if anyone has heard from Boston University, NYU (I know someone got a waitlist notice but has anyone gotten an acceptance/rejection? I interviewed first week of Feb and have heard nothing since), Rutgers or UConn?
    I've heard back from Boston College, Maryland, and UPenn but radio silence from the other schools ?

    I emailed the coordinator at Rutgers, they are sending out results starting this week. Seems like we have a bunch of overlaps! Did you get any admissions yet?

    Just got accepted to UIC DHD Disability Studies PhD program! Now I gotta figure out if my interdisciplinary research focus would be better served with a disability emphasis or SW emphasis.

    Heyyy friend~ I feel you... the pain of waiting and getting rejections is so excruciating ? But never give up the hope!!!  I think NYU has already sent out a round of acceptance (i got the waitlist email). I seriously have no idea what is going on with BU... emailed program director for updates last week but haven't heard back from him yet...

    For me, 7 rejections so far (WUSTL, UChicago, UT, UW-Seattle, UMich, Columbia, UC Berkeley & 3 pending (UNC, Boston U, NYU)
    Never had any interview at all. I've beenworking as a medical social worker at a small nonprofit clinic since getting my MSSW at UT in 2020; have 4 co-authored publications (all qualitative research); no TA or RA experience
    Congrats to those who got acceptances! I hope everyone gets accepted to their top choice program if still waiting for results!

    Ok. I got my last decision for this cycle
    WashU accepted, U Chicago & Berkeley rejected. Columbia waitlisted. 
    Undergrad 3.5 & Grad 3.97 GPA. GRE 163+170+4.5. 5 yrs full time research experience post masters at school of medicine. Several peer & non peer reviewed pubs. Very strong letters from faculty who knew me for several years. 
    I have a MSW/MPH dual degree so disciplinary boundaries are really blurred to me. I am a bit but not really surprised by the results. This is probably an indication of my interests fit better with the public health side. But social work is where my heart is. 
    Congrats to those who got in! You will be doing amazing and important work no matter where you land.

    It's much better than I imagined. I have a connection who got admitted last year and it was $29k.

    What was your reasoning for applying to UofT if you think its not good enough? Speaking as a Canadian, UofTs social work program is one of, if not, the most popular program in Canada and its not easy to get accepted. Apart from social work, the University of Toronto in general, is a well known school that carries a name to it. If you're not feeling it or think it's not prestigious enough then perhaps turn it down as I'm sure there are plenty of other people who would gladly accept the offer.

    Unsure if you mean UW as in University of Washington or University of Wisconsin, I did an interview last week with the former, did not apply to the latter, but good luck!

    This round I'm applying to 2 SW doctoral programs. I just got my first acceptance from UW-M. Still waiting on UChicago. I'm also applying to Dis Studies at UIC and Psych at UPenn. If anyone else is applying at UW-M, I talked with the DGS of the SW PhD program. They're looking to get official rejections/acceptances out on Feb 9th and funding info on Feb 16th. UChicago will likely reach out to people closer to March re: funding and acceptances.
