  1. Hello! I’m a Nursing Home Administrator and am in my decision process of choosing the right masters program for the Fall. UCLA eMPH and CSULB MSHCA-AP both accepted me, however, I’m not sure which school/ program is best for me. I’ve evaluated the course schedule, faculty, alumni, cost, time, and distance. UCLA has always been my dream school due to its prestige. Conversely, choosing UCLA would mean commuting to LA from OC every other week, taking Fridays off for classes, and hopefully crashing the night at an apartment so I don’t have to drive back the following day. CSULB has it’s pros and cons as well- it’s a hybrid program, so I would only need to commute every Saturday and the other half of the program is online. The drive is only about 20 mins to CSULB vs an hour to UCLA. CSULB is also a third of the cost compared to UCLA. So now the question is- which school and program should I choose and that it would be most applicable to my career in working with older adults as a Nursing Home Administrator? All thoughts are appreciated!

    Can I appeal?

    Hello, I applied to the MSW program for CSULB, CSULA, CSUSB and CSUF in January and have not received an interview from any school. This is my first time applying and I did miss the transcript deadline by about 3 days. My GPA is 2.9 from a CC and a 3.1 from a 4 year. I have been taking 5 classes each semester for the last 60 units. I was rejected from CSULB, CSULA, and CSUSB this past week. I am still waiting to hear back from CSUF. My question is.. Does anyone know if I can appeal their decision? How does the process work? Thank you.
  3. Haven't heard anything from any LA/OC County Cal States (CSUF, CSULA, CSULB, CSUN) so I thought I'd start this in case anyone has heard/hears anything.
  4. Hi everyone! I recently got accepted to CSUF, CSULB, Biola, CBU, and Portland State. I’m having a hard time deciding which school would be the best for me, and I’m looking for current graduate students to share their experience and give their honest opinions about the programs they’re either currently in or have completed. Thanks!!
  5. I applied to CSULB and have been checking the status by going to the self service and putting in my campus ID and everything. I tried it a couple of days ago and it says that I will get something in my email and I wait but I never get anything. The last time I got something from them was the following: Report prepared on 03/04/2019 The current status of your application: Your application has been reviewed and has been forwarded to the academic department for their review. Every effort will be made to provide you with a timely decision. In the meantime, be sure to check the website of your academic department for departmental deadlines and any additional required documents. Remember to check your email regularly for messages from CSULB regarding admission decisions, any upcoming deadlines or required documents. Why am I no longer getting anything? What does this mean? Is this happening to anyone else?

    Decision Question: MSW for CSULB, CSUF and CSUSM

    Hi, I have a question. I've been reading the forums for a while and have read wonderful news about fellow potential social workers hearing of acceptance. I noticed many are receiving acceptances but are still waiting for more. Because of deadlines, I imagine that some are agreeing to the acceptance and paying the deposits such as intent to enroll but are still waiting for the other schools' decisions before making a true decision on where to attend. So my question is, are you allowed to agree to one acceptance and then change your mind if you find that another is best suited for you? Are there any ramifications other than losing out the deposit? I graduated from CSUF in Spring of 2018. I hope to return to school Fall of 2019. I applied to CSUSM, CSULB, and CSUF for their 2 year MSW programs. I would prefer CSULB and CSUF as the distance would be far better for me financially. I can only attend CSUSM if I am accepted by CALSWEC otherwise I would have no other way to pay for it. I can attend the other two schools on a Veteran Dependent program but not CSUSM so that's why I would need CALSWEC. I was offered conditional admission (they need official transcripts regarding Stat course) and have ONLY 2 weeks to confirm and pay the intent to enroll fee in order to reserve my seat in the program. I know they use the wording "reserve" as the universities understand that life happens and changes are made. I will be accepting the program but feel slightly frustrated as I know that CALSWEC will not reply until the end of March as stated in their emails. The CALSWEC program replies at the end of March and the interviews are the 3rd and 4th of April so everything (meaning my financial ability to pay and attend for the next two years) would be contingent on the interview going well and being accepted into the CALSWEC program. I am still waiting to hear from CSULB and CSUF and I understand that their invitation to interview does not mean automatic acceptance. Mainly, I am feeling anxious due to confirming my seat at CSUSM while not having a way to pay for it and I won't know until, best case scenario, Mid-April in hearing from CALSWEC. All while, waiting for an invitation to interview at CSULB or CSUF and then waiting 1 to 3 weeks after completing the interview to hear good or bad news. Logically, I understand that reserving seats are common and the students and schools are both accustomed to people changing their mind, yet I can help but feel guilty of not being able to make a firm decision yet for fellow applicants and potential social workers and worried that the schools won't allow you to accept their offer if you already reserved your spot for another. Has anyone ever accepted one university offer only to change your mind for a better-suited program and NOT receive negative ramifications other than losing out on a bit of money from the deposit? Did you lose out on a better-suited school because you reserved your spot and the CSU schools found out and removed their offers because of this? Sorry for the long message. Any information would be VERY helpful. 😊

    CSULB SCHOOL COUNSELING FALL 2017

    Hi guys, I noticed there isn't any School Counseling information here so I decided to create a thread. I only applied to CSULB School Counseling program for fall 2017. Had my interview March 18 and was notified via email on April 6 that I am on the wait list I was wondering if any of you that were accepted to csulb program are not going there after all? I don't know where I am in the list they wont let us know... I am so hopeful someone decides to go to another program or the program is able to get more funding (PLEASE!!!) just wanted to see where everyone is at right now, thank you guys!
  9. Hi everyone, I'm currently an SLP undergraduate at a local CSU. I'm interested in applying to graduate school in California but want to know what experience, test scores, GPA, etc I should have to remain competitive. Has anyone gotten accepted to the CSUF, CSULB, or Chapman SLP Grad program? If so, what were your stats related to scores/gpa/experience? Any advice as well?

    MSW CSU 2018

    Hi Guys! So it’s about that time! Schools are sending out their acceptance/decline letters. Let this be a place where you can share which CSUs you applied, which ones you’ve heard from and have yet to hear from. If you got invited for an interview please share some tips for those who haven’t had theirs yet. Let’s support each other and possibly meet people who will be in your program in the fall! My name is Selene and I applied to the extended programs for CSUF CSULA and CSUDH. I got accepted to CSULA and CSUDH but have yet to hear anything from CSUF.
  11. I was wondering if anyone who is currently or finished a MSW Advanced Standing Program could give me any feedback. I will be applying to a MSW program this Fall and I'm looking into advanced standing programs. If anyone could tell me their stats(gpa,volunteering/work), if they felt the program was too fast, can you still apply for CALSWEC in the one yr program, were you able to work at all? If you weren't able to work then how did you pay for bills/housing. Also, did you have to take out any loans.
  12. Hey all! I just joined GradCafe, and I am so stoked but also nervous about the fact that applying for grad schools is just around the corner. Right now I am feeling so nervous because I know my credentials are not where they need to be. I'm graduating early in December, but since most grad schools don't do spring start and heading straight to grad school with no break would be INSANE, I am planning on finishing out my lease here. Then I'll be applying for summer and fall start dates at multiple schools. I have a few school ideas, which I'll state down below. I plan to earn a Masters in Social Work, potentially with a concentration in mental health. First, I wanted to give you an idea of my stats (no judgment--from the threads I have read so many of you have intensive experience and stellar GPAs :/ ): Undergraduate Degree @ University of South Carolina -- Experimental Psychology major with two minors: Social Work; Counselor Education GPA - 3.0 overall, should be closer to a 3.1 by the time I graduate (Yes, I know, it's low...it's not horrible, but if college had been a little less rocky I could have done super well ) Member of Psi Chi, International Honors Society in Psychology Member of a panhellenic sorority through which I have volunteered and participated in philanthropy events Was in charge of a philanthropy within my sorority where sisters help a local blind man with every day tasks This is it so far, however I have a few plans under my belt that I am almost positive I can follow through with: This semester I will be completing at least 45 service hours with a local organization that provides lower-income individuals with housing (definitely happening, it's a part of a practicum I'm taking) If all goes well, I plan to intern in Rome for 8 weeks with a social service organization this summer. I should be working about 20 hours a week. I plan to join Delta Alpha Pi, an Honors Society for people with disabilities (I have severe depression which has contributed to my mediocre GPA). I plan to get involved with the Undergraduate Social Work Student Association at my school. I haven't taken the GRE yet, so it could definitely still be a factor in boosting the impressiveness of my application. I am a strong reader and writer. If anyone has specific tips about the GRE, please let me know! ^^^So this is what I plan to achieve before I have to do applications (in the fall for the summer 2019 start, and in the winter for the fall 2019 start I suppose). For some reason, I have had a hard time finding paid opportunities/internships in the city of Columbia that are geared towards psychology or social work. I am going to keep looking, but the opportunities seem few and far between. That being said...what do you all think? What are some things you suggest I do, between now and the time I apply, to make my application as impressive as possible? I know I can't take back my GPA, but I can try to make up for it in other respects. From what I have read on here, those with low GPAs have been able to impress graduate schools in other ways. Again, if yo've got tips, let me know! Lastly, I wanted to list some schools that I am considering. I am going to rank them in order of my interest right now. If any of you know anything about these school's admission rates or have any specific insider info about a school, PLEASE contact me. I would love to get in touch with some of you and potentially ease my fears about applying for grad school! Here's my list: 1. University of Denver 2. San Diego State University 3. University of Southern California (the other USC...hehe) 4. Arizona State University 5. Florida International University and some maybes: Cal State - Long Beach; San Jose State University; Metropolitan State University of Denver As you can see, I really want to go far away and preferably out west (I've lived in SC my entire life). I am not sure about the admission rates of these schools, though I have heard that SDSU and USC are more competitive. I would love to hear thoughts on your experience with applying (especially to any of the schools above), selectiveness of these schools, my potential chances of getting in, and their quality of education. Thank you for anyone who actually took the time to read all of this!!! Any help at all would be so appreciated, even if it is constructive criticism. ~PeaceLoveSocialWork~
  13. Hello, I'm interested in becoming a School Psychologist. I plan to apply to a Masters program this fall 2018. Currently finishing my bachelor's. My question is: Is it better to apply to a program that is a Educational Specialist degree in School Psychology (Ed.s) or Masters program in Counseling: School Psychology Credential. I really would like to go to CSUEB because they offer the Masters in Counseling: School Psychology Credential Program with Marriage and Family Therapy Licensure but I'm assuming these programs are different due to one being a Educational Specialist degree and the other being a Masters in counseling. Are there pros and cons to applying to a Masters in Counseling: with School Psychology Credential compared to applying to an Educational Specialist degree in School Psychology? (Ed.s) Whats the difference? Is it possible that employers look only for people who have an Educational Specialist Degree in School Psychology vs people with a Masters in Counseling: School Psychology Credential? Do they offer better pay to those who have an Educational Specialist degree? Thank you.
  14. I'm having a hard time figuring out how long the graduate programs are at the schools I'm applying to. The websites don't explicitly say! Can anyone tell me? Fullerton - I've heard they have a new 2 year program in addition to a longer one? Northridge - grad cafe posts have said 2-2.5 years? Long beach - their website does say it typically takes 2.5-3 years. what determines this? is it possible to be done in 2 years? Thanks for any info!

    MSW Fall 2016 CSULA vs CSULB

    I recently been accepted to both CSULA and the CSULB Msw programs. I'm stuck on which one to attend. Some tell me that the CSULB has a better program but others advise me to chose CSULA. Does anyone have any advice or info on which one is better? I need advice from current applicants, enrolled, or alumni. Thank You
  16. Hi everyone! I am a recent graduate from CSULB. I am applying to a MSW program for Fall 2017, but I am lost in my journey. I have a few questions for anyone who can answer them.I am considering applying to CSULB, CSUF and CSULA. I will be paying for school all on my own and I still have undergrad loans so I am looking for something affordable but a good school. What is the cost for the MSW program at each school? What are current students paying? What time are classes? I've heard they are later in the evening I know that experience is important so what kind of experience did you have when you got accepted? I dont have any background in social work and I feel that my experience isnt up to par so I am nervous about my chances getting into any of these schools. Stats: Major: Sociology GPA: 3.4 5 Month internship working with foster youth 3 years working with at risk children under 18
  17. Hello, I've been really busy on the college confidential site for getting accepted at my university of choice after finishing work at my community college, and thanks in large part to that community and the information we all shared with each other, I got in. So I will be starting this fall at the University of California Irvine as a Psychology and Social Behavior major. I am also pursuing a seperate AS degree in Alcohol and Drug studies, it's the curriculum needed to become a certified substance abuse counselor. My long term goal is to work as an LCSW, but really focus on conducting therapy, at least for as long as I enjoy it. I like the flexibility of the MSW route compared to going for an MFT or LPCC. Now I have been told by professors that I need to be applying for grad school in about 1 year, and if possible I want to be preparing for that over the course of this year ahead so that when it is time I'm ready. I'm looking at USC, UCLA, CSULB, and CSUF as possible schools to apply to right now, so any advice on what I should be doing to be better prepared, insight into the quality of those schools, or what is really required of an applicant to have a shot at getting in to any of those schools would be very helpful. Thank you for taking the time to help me out, and for as long as I am in the process of applying and working towards grad school I will stick around this community and try to help those who come after me.
  18. ANYONE HEAR FROM CALIFORNIA STATE LONG BEACH Master of Arts in Psychological Research or MAPR???? This is the last school that I am waiting for a decision. Any information will be helpful. Thank you

    After the interview

    Hey everyone, so i just wanted an opinion from fellow grad applicants or current Graduate students. I was interviewed close to a month ago for a masters in psychological research at CSULB, MAPR. After the interview, I made sure to send a well written thank you note and the professor replied. I have not heard from the CSULB but Im hearing people are starting to get acceptance & rejections letters from CSULB & other CSU's. REASON FOR THIS POST: Should I email back the professor and check in with him that I am still interested in the program and keep my name in his head lol? All opinions from this forum is welcomed! Thanks in advance for your advise
