    UCLA MSW 2019 Applicants

    Forum for Fall 2019 MSW Applicants to UCLA!! Post questions about the applications, stats for yourself, or notify us when you hear something from UCLA!!
  3. Hi all! I know it's early but I just thought I would start this thread for those planning to apply to the University of Pittsburgh's MSW program this year. This can be a space to share our hopes, fears, stats, scholarship info, and any technical issues that we may be having with the process. As for me, I'm planning to apply by the December 31st deadline so that I can get that sweet sweet combination of guaranteed admission and scholarship assistance. This is my second cycle applying and I'm eager to get the process over and done with! Does anyone know if they have opened the application yet? I already asked my references from last year if they would mind writing me one more letter of recommendation and they all said yes, thank God. I'm having a little trouble with the ApplyYourself portal, though - when I log in and click on "Edit Application" nothing happens. I did create my profile last spring though so maybe that's part of the problem? Thoughts?

    Multiple Deposits?

    Was wondering about putting down multiple deposits at schools. My partner is applying to law schools and is still waiting to hear back from some, and likely will hear back after I will have to commit to a school. Is it ok to put down deposits at multiple schools? Obviously I would lose that deposit if I chose not to attend that school, but wanted to make sure there wasn't some overall institutional policy that prevents me from doing this. Thanks in advance!

    Fordham online MSW

    I recently applied to Fordham's online MSW program for the May term. I applied as an advanced standing student. I am a little nervous about being admitted to the program even tho my GPA meets the minimum 3.0. Has anyone applied to, been admitted or still waiting for a decision from Fordham's Online MSW program?
  6. I applied back in November to CSUF, CSUN, SDSU and CSUSM and I am trying to see if anyone has heard from these programs as far as admissions!? I’m going nuts checking my email and logins !

    Getting more $$ from schools??

    Hi! How tf do I get schools to give me more money (i.e. reevaluate my financial aid and scholarships given)? Like who do I contact, how do I go about it? Do I email a school and say "Hi, you gave me ___ but this other school is giving me____ so could I have more?" lol. I am specifically trying to get more money from UMich and Columbia, but would love to hear anyone's advice/experience from literally any program.

    UChicago, MSW 2019

    SDSU MSW FALL 2019

    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?

    Need help with decision: UT vs. UH

    Hi all, I have been looking through the social work threads and have found it very comforting to know that there are people who are going through the application and decision process with me. I needed some advice on making a decision on which MSW program to choose. I only applied to two programs which are the University of Texas at Austin and University of Houston programs, I have been accepted to both as well. Problem is, they both have pros and cons for me and I'm having a really hard time choosing which school to attend. Here are the pros and cons: UT Pros: Living on my own (I currently live at home in Houston with my parents) Highly ranked social work program I get to challenge myself in a new school/city UT Cons: I have no professional connections in Austin I would have to start networking again Housing is expensive UH Pros: I have professional connections in Houston I currently have a mental health internship that helps me gain experience for the future Houston is a city which has a lot of internship opportunities for MSW students I am comfortable with UH (I did my undergrad here) and I know the school I would save money on housing UH Cons: I would have to live with my family (I tried negotiating living on my own but parents wont let me) Limited chance to grow as a person on my own* *I live in a south asian household which is pretty different from the individualized American ideal, for me living on my own lets me choose where to go whenever I want and do what I want without having my parents criticize or question my decisions/try to control me. This might sound like an easy decision for some of you, but for me it determines how I will be spending the next two years of my life and if it will help me grow as a person and in my career. I appreciate any help I can get.

    Canadian MSW Applicants 2018

    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!
  17. Hello! I've been accepted to UCLA and wait listed at UC Berkeley for the Masters in Social Welfare program beginning this Fall. I am over the moon but also a bit at a crossroads. It seems that near everyone I speak to have a strong lean toward UCB and I wonder how much of it is due to name recognition and prestige over the program itself or the potential fit it might be. UCB is the main reason I began to apply to graduate programs, but UCLA seems like it would potentially be a better fit. I am deadset on UCLA but am WELL aware that I might be thrown for a loop if I am offered admission to UC Berkeley. Do any social workers here have feedback on what you believe are some of the strongest points of draw backs to these programs? I see a lot of positives and honestly, not much draw back aside from not having too much formal experience conducting research. Thank you!
  18. 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? thanks
  19. Hello everyone, I was recently notified that I’ve been accepted into UNR’s MSW program. I couldn’t find many recent posts about them so I made my own. Has anyone else went to UNR or been accepted there?
  20. I applied to Portland State University MSW program for Fall 2019, I sent in my application on December 21st, and received notification that I was accepted (yay!) on February 27th. I applied to the distance education campus in Central Oregon (Bend). I want to know if there is anyone out there that has also applied, waiting to hear a response, or was accepted. I'm sort of confused on the next steps because I applied to the distance education campus, but only receiving e-mails and FAQs for PSU. Their website doesn't help at all, and my next step is to reach out to the admissions/social work program itself. Any help? Good news? Other people, who are attending?

    University of Denver MSW

    I can't seem to find a specific Denver University MSW thread, but now that the February 15 deadline has passed, is there anyone else anxiously waiting a response? Anyone accepted already?

    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. 😊

    Rutgers MSW

    Hi all! I have been snooping all of the MSW posts I can find but couldn't find much about those accepted to Rutgers MSW program (New Brunswick) for Fall 2019. I was accepted and am still waiting on an award letter (reaching their financial aid department has been absolute hell), and I was wondering who else has been accepted, where else you applied, and if you were planning on joining their class of 2021! I applied to UC Berkeley (rejected), UCLA (waiting to hear back), and Rutgers, and depending on aid, may end up choosing Rutgers to be closer to family.
