  1. I've been trying to find something useful to say on here... I haven't thought of anything. But I'm super curious when the next waive of people show up to get info and support and where they will apply for admission! And how many people will come back and keep in touch from last year!! Where are you laster year'ers? Hi new folks!
  2. First assignment is due Tuesday!! Welcome back to school!!!
  3. Have a wonderful Fall semester everyone!! Especially those starting this fall or spring and have a last few days/months to go ๐Ÿ™‚ *I canโ€™t believe Iโ€™m already reading for class again, also canโ€™t believe how much of the road is behind me already! ๐Ÿคฏ
  4. I'm going to miss this thread.
  5. Come join us all on the 2022 thread!!!! @DSWstudentTSSW, I hope I'm not taking your thunder by posting the new thread you started.
  6. I'm jumping ahead of myself here, but I'm looking forward to the bigger numbers of people joining this tread when application season comes back around.
  7. LOL! yes, I would like to hear how the Bama process is for someone at some point along the way!!
  8. If you feel aligned with the ideas of social work and the concept of what you would gain from attending the program I wouldn't at all let it stop you! They admit non-social workers, it's part of the program. just my 2 cents
  9. Everything, okay, I'll give it a shot. I'm on break right now so it's fresh in my mind that you get about 2 weeks between semesters and I'd encourage you to plan a vacation for each of them . USC is on of the only programs I know of that do not require an MSW for acceptance, but that may be changing to requiring an MSW, so you found the program at the right time. I did take the traditional MSW --> DSW route, I have 13ish years of experience working in some aspect of social services or mental health. I think I had a 3.78 GPA when I got my MSW and was in the Macro Track. I was looking at goin
  10. I think I am the people at USC ๐Ÿ˜‚ Happy to help, what'cha wanna know about?
  11. Congrats!! that's fantastic to hear!! Do you know when you present? ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸŽ‰
  12. Currently I'm at USC, who loves to talk about the number of first gen students they have and about being multi-cultural. My program is in fact quite diverse with a large African American/BIPOC population. Unfortunately the school has almost no one teaching that resembles us and quite a few people who are unable to talk about race and racism (pick your ism really) in an appropriate way. Not just my experience, but the feeling from a large group of students. some of them have gone to the point of working against it.

    I'd be curious about joining people for a coffee or something if it ends up happening. I've thought about these before but never done it. (I'm not new to the city so maybe helpful, possibly less excitement brought by me ๐Ÿ˜‚)
  14. sounds good to me! nice name change btw.
  15. I didn't see the comment you made about starting a new thread, but this seems like a great post to quote (Congrats again!) I was thinking that new thread could be well timed so the convo keeps going and has some traction early (probably the same thing you said it the post I didn't find) and now that your in it seems like there is some closure on this thread (too social workie a way of thinking about it? ๐Ÿ˜‚)
  16. Additionally LCSW's are able to work in every state, where LMHC/LMFT/M.Ed etc. are often limited in their capacity based on state regulation and license reciprocity.
  17. Congrats on your ASW graduation! Well earned! and best of luck with Fordham!
  18. the free thing, I don't know how to explain it. I just know the administrators tell me that I will have some of it and that it is good. I'm trying to trust them. fingers crossed! I wish we could just wrap this thread into next year.
  19. Oh, I have a goldstone maybe a mile away!
  20. Also, what sweet dogs!!! and another of my enjoyed ice creams, when I have had it at little creameries that do their own, I would probably take it over Mint Chip.
  21. I was just watching a pair of Goldens at the pride race yesterday, one was red and the other light blond/gold, now I find out the difference, I should have checked this message sooner!
  22. YES!!!!!!!! Congratulations!!! I'm so excited for you!!! Time to get on the "what do I do with my free time before school starts" band wagon!! So fantastic! ๐Ÿฅณ๐ŸŽ‰
  23. Yes, we have class every summer, although this is the fullest summer. Next year will be one class with instruction and research (I hear that is going to give me more flexibility to go to the beach eat ice cream) the following summer will be prepping to defend and then defending. So exciting and so much to do in only a couple of years! That and finding ice cream with brownie pieces.
  24. Any word? If you haven't heard back by now I would reach out to them personally. +1
