  1. I am reapplying for the MSW program this year. I have 3 people in mind for my reference forms. I am applying to CSU's mainly. Here are my choices: 1. I took a class with this professor about a year ago. I asked him to be my reference last year and he said yes. I am planning to meet with him this week. 2. I am currently taking a social work class and have asked the professor if she is able to. She said yes. I have only known her for a few months. 3. I have been volunteering at a hospital and plan to ask my supervisor. I have only known her since June 2019. Do you feel these options are good enough? I want to ask them all personally and have really shown motivation for getting my MSW. Any feedback would be appreciated. The face that I have only known reference 2 and 3 for a short amount of time is what worries me.. maybe it's not allowed?
  2. Hi all! I wanted to start a thread for those applying to MSW/PhD programs. I am currently considering applying to a ton of programs to increase my chances of acceptance. I already have an MPP. It looks like most programs want you to already have a masters prior to applying. I have also worked in healthcare and health policy for about 8 years. Stats, if interested: - BS from Cornell. GPA: 3.4, but I was pre-med and took a ton of life science courses. Excellent grades in social science courses. - MPP from Brown. They do not do GPA and only give whole letter grades (no +/-). - GRE: V 162/ Q 157/ W 5.5 (V+Q 319)
  3. I'm a rising senior at the University of Virginia, a psych major and my current GPA is 3.1. I want to apply to the VCU MSW program this fall. I am planning on raising my GPA with my summer and fall classes which shouldn't be as difficult as what I've taken so far. VCU is the only school I'm interested in, I've only heard bad things about the GMU MSW program. I'm planning on taking the GRE soon but I'm wondering if it's even worth it. I have an internship coming up at a school for boys on the spectrum, and I have social services related volunteer experience. But even if I get my GPA up to a 3.3 or a 3.5, do I have a shot? I would love to hear the stats of people who have been admitted to or graduated from the program already.
  4. Hi! I'm currently a senior at TCNJ. I'm a Psych/Public Health dual major. I'm just going to list some of the things that will hopefully make me stand out, but I'm also going to attach my (really, really rough and in progress so don't judge) CV for more detail and stuff: my gpa is a 3.93/4.0 Phi Beta Kappa Lots of work with diverse individuals due to TCNJ's proximity to Trenton 120 hours in Fall 2017 at a nonprofit in Trenton that works with adolescents of different demographics (LGBTQ, homeless, etc) with emotional and behavioral challenges I've been in a research lab on campus since January that focuses on youth and community development, doing two major projects at a Trenton full-service elementary school DBT infused group work with 4th graders Mindfulness First author of an accepted Eastern Psychological Conference presentation submission I guess I'm just trying to figure out how competitive these MSW programs are & what my chances are? also, if anyone wants to review my previous statement, lmk (: real rough.docx
  5. Hey y’all! I’m applying to the advanced standing track with a focus in policy. Is anyone else struggling with the essays?
  6. Hi there!! I have been doing extensive research and trying to decide which Online MSW programs to apply too. I am really curious about anyones experience on the program you chose and if you are happy with it. I'm a bit nervous to bite the bullet on an online program, but I can't financially swing something totally in-person since I'll be working to pay for school!! A little bit about me: - This would be my second Master's, first in Public Administration - Decided I wanted to transition to clinical Social Work with an emphasis in counseling. - Considering Simmons and Case Western, but horrified on the reviews from Simmons. It sounds good on paper, but hard to tell what it is actually like!!
  7. Hi all, I am looking for an affordable and quality masters program that will eventually allow me to become a practicing licensed clinician upon graduation. This could either be an MSW (accredited by CSWE), an MFT/CFT program (accredited by COAMFTE), or a Clinical Mental Health Counseling program (accredited by CACREP). While money is a primary concern when it comes to making my decision about a program, I will also not sacrifice the quality of my education just because of the price. I am hoping to hear others' ideas about great programs that are not overwhelmingly expensive. Thanks!
  8. Hello, I am probably a bit early to start this forum, but would love to connect with folks applying to SJSU MSW for Fall 2020. Good luck to everyone working on their apps!
  9. Hello Columbia hopefuls! As I was researching information about Columbia's MSW program several months ago, I came across a tread on this site for applicants for Columbia's Fall 2017 cohort. Applicants used the forum to offer encouragement and guidance through the application process, as well as provide updates about acceptance, financial aid, stats, and other things. It looked like it was tremendously helpful for them to have a community alongside them in the process (especially in the dreadful wait to hear back about acceptance). So I wanted to create an open thread for those applying to Columbia's Fall 2018 MSW cohort. Use this thread for questions about the application, updates about acceptance, and anything else related to the application season for Columbia Fall 2018. I look forward to hearing from others who are hopeful to attend Columbia for their graduate school and hope to see some of you in the fall!
  10. Hey there, This is my first time using Grad Cafe, not sure if I'm posting in the right spot but I'm interested to hear from those of you who are applying for an MSW anywhere in Canada in 2018. What kind of work experience is most relevant? I've potentially found a job working in the registration department at the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario screening applicants from prospective therapists - would you say that looks favourable on an MSW application? Thanks for your input!
  11. Hello, I'm getting started for the Fall of 2020 applications with personal statements. I'm targeting Cal State universities and having a hard time figuring out how to write/structure my personal statement. With most if not all universities asking the applicants to answer multiple questions, some give the option to answer each question separately and others are ambiguous about it. I'm basing this on 2019 applications, as 2020 apps are not out yet. I'm aware that the questions may change, but still getting a head start so I can have the majority of the content ready to be edited and interwoven. For example, CSULB had 9 questions for regular applicants, to be answered in either an essay or numbered responses. CSULA had 5, and to be answered in order with headings (does that mean just to number my responses?). Questions: - Does it matter if I write in one essay or number my responses? One essay would be a testament to my writing ability while numbering my responses would greatly help with clarity. - Follow up question: can I choose to answer a few questions in one essay and number the responses for the rest? (e.g. combining questions 1,2,3,5,7 in one essay and writing out separate responses for the others). I would really appreciate any input on this, as I feel very confused right now. Thank you!!
  12. Hi! I am planning on applying to Columbia's MSW Online Advanced Standing Program here in the fall, I was hoping someone who applied in past years or who might be in the program can give me some insight as to what they might be looking for, how to make me a more competitive candidate or anything to help out a stressed college student. Thank you much!
  13. Hey everyone! I just wanted to connect with others who are also waiting for admission decisions for MSW programs; this process feels like it's taking forever! I applied to UC Berkeley, CSU East Bay, SF State, and am still working on SJSU. This is definitely nerve-wracking! Has anyone else applied and feels nervous????? Which programs did ya'll apply to??
  14. In prep for applying to Hunter's MSW program, I'm considering taking one of the Non-matriculated social work courses they offer. I understand that can be transferred over into the matriculated program. Does anyone know if NYU, Columbia would offer the same benefit? Thanks!
  15. Hi all, still waiting to hear back from SJSU for there online MSW program. Has anyone heard back? I’ve read latest would be June.
  16. I applied to CSUF, CSULA, CSUSB and CSULB for the MSW program for fall 2019. I sent in my applications right before the priority deadline ended. CSUSB and CSULB have my application under review for the program. Has anyone heard back from any of the schools mentioned for the MSW program? If you have, When did you send in your application? How did you send it in? How long did it take for them to get back to you? How did you get your acceptance or rejection? Thank you.
  17. Hey Everyone! SDSU 3 Year MSW Direct Practice is my #1 choice and I have been checking my portal every day to see if admission decisions have been made yet. I know on the FAQ it says letters will be mailed between April-June, but I also heard about earlier dates from reliable sources. Has anyone heard anything back?
  18. Hey, I wanted to start a thread to share stats and acceptance/rejection timelines. I am currently applying to CSULB, CSULA, and CSUDH. Cal state long beach is my top choice. I am ready to turn in my application as soon as I get my ID. My overall GPA is 3.1 and my last 60 unit GPA is 3.5. I only have one Social work related work experience but I have worked there for 3 years. I have also worked as a research and teaching assistant for 2 years. Hopefully, that will help.
  19. I sent in my application for the 2-year on-campus program, on 01/08/2019. Alright, who's waiting with me?
  20. Has anyone applied to the MSW program at Stanislaus State? If so, any update?
  21. Hello York University Advanced Standing MSW Students and Alumni, I am hoping we can use this forum to share tips, resources, and experiences regarding the MSW curriculum and the placement process at YorkU. I'm looking forward to starting the program and learning from one another!
  22. Those going through the application process for the California State University graduate programs at whatever campus, this is a place to share progress and ask questions. If we work together and support eachother we each stand a greater chance of success in admission to the CSU of choice. Please include your stats when pertinent.
  23. Hi everyone, I graduate this Friday (well I'm walking the stage and I have 2 online summer classes to go) and I'm so nervous and scared for my future. I really want to go to grad school to get my MSW but I am so burnt out from undergrad that I am taking a gap year. Also it was so expensive to apply to grad school. My bachelors of science is in Human Development and Family Studies with a minor in Latino/a Studies. My dream grad school is University of Chicago but I am too afraid to apply or even apply to other schools. I'm so afraid of failure and rejection. I just wanted to know how and why you think you got accepted into those SW programs? I have done a lot of service and social justice activism/work in my undergrad, as well as being apart of many different orgs and having leadership positions. I just think my grades espeically senior year grades are not the best. I don't know my final grades but I'm hoping my GPA would stand at 3.0 or higher at the end.
  24. I figured I would start a thread for those who will be attending Rutgers NB for their MSW since I haven't seen one yet. Looking forward to talking to some of you 🙂
  25. Hi there everyone! I applied to CSUN, CSUSB, and LSU for their MSW online programs. Has anyone heard anything? I have received emails from all of them that they have my applications, but nothing more than that. CSUSB sent me an email saying I was accepted by the school now I need acceptance into the school of social work. fingers crossed. They are my first choice, since it is the cheapest program.
