  1. Hello! I’ve been doing my due diligence and research trying to find MSW programs and schools that have a macro concentration. Specifically with a policy specialization. I’m in NY and have been attending multiple online Information sessions so I could apply by the priority deadlines for Fall 2021. (I will be an Advanced Standing student) Through the postings on here I have read and learned that once licensure is secured, career options mostly depend on field work, volunteer opportunities and how well you’ve networked. I was hoping someone could offer guidance on their decision making if they have decided to go the macro route. Was field work opportunities/placement the biggest factor in your decision? Columbia is known for their policy program, but I just don’t feel any school is worth that price tag. I have meetings with Fordham and Rutgers that I hope will go better. any information and all guidance is greatly appreciated!
  2. hi, i am deciding between uc berkeley and university of chicago for my MSW. i am interested in macro-level social work and organizational leadership, specifically at youth-serving non-profits and gov't agencies. I'm especially interested in positive youth development, management and planning, and issues/intersections of race, ethnicity, poverty and inequality. i like to work hard and study complex issues in my classes. I would like to practice social work in the Bay Area after graduation, but SSA seems like the best academic fit. Do you agree? Any insight is appreciated. Thank you.
  3. Hey fellow coffee drinkers! I am currently applying for MSW programs (USC, BU, Columbia) and am experiencing an internal battle on whether I should go for a Macro Program or a Micro program. I have a BA in Psychology and Economics and have been working in a venture philanthropy fund for the last two years doing research on high impact organizations. I am quite aware that with a background like that, I should be going into Macro due to all the management/organizational level experience. The reason I am getting my MSW though is because I want to work more directly with beneficiaries. My question is, can I do a Macro program (leveraging my work experience and reinforcing it), and end up focusing on Micro post degree (if I fall in love working with individuals in that capacity)? If anybody has come across any problems with choosing one over the other, and regretted it at some capacity afterwards, please share Thank you!
  4. Hi all, I'm not planning to apply for MSW schools until next Fall, but I feel like I need to start making decisions soon to figure what I want to do. I want to eventually work in a policy/administrative role, but I also enjoy working directly with people. I have a BA in International Studies with a minor in Economics and have a lot of academic preparation for policy work, but my post-graduate work experience is in more direct service roles. I had a case management position working in a transitional housing program for immigrant families for my first post-grad year, and now I work as a case manager in a prenatal program in a clinic that serves a mostly Latin American immigrant population. After speaking with and learning about the work that LCSWs in my workplace do, I don't think I would want to do clinical social work as a career. While I enjoy working with people, the parts I enjoy most about my job are learning about different health and social programs in the county and transferring this knowledge to clients - I don't really want to do psychotherapy. I've heard the term mezzo social work thrown around but never got a good idea of what a mezzo social work job would look like - something with a combination of direct and macro practice? That seems ideal to me but I'm unsure how many of these jobs actually exist. I also have a fairly strong stats/quant background and experience as a research assistant - I don't want to waste all that I learned in undergrad. I've thought about applying to macro MSW programs, but I'm afraid that my lack of macro work experience wouldn't make me a strong candidate. Would I still be able to get a macro/mezzo job post-MSW with a clinical track but if I pursued leadership/research opportunities? I also am afraid of missing out on learning clinical skills with a macro track that would be useful to know when evaluating programs/doing community organizing/etc. Has anyone here pursued a clinical MSW track but ended up working in a macro/mezzo job? Alternatively, has anyone applied and gotten in to a macro track program with just direct practice work experience? Any advice is appreciated, thank you!!
  5. Question: We know that in the long run open economy, the real interest rate in the small open economy (SOE) is determined by the world real interest rate. Given that: What does this imply for the Capital Share of Income in the small open economy? Can taxes be used in this scenario to redistribute income (in small open economy)? I am looking for economic intuitive answers here. Regards
