  1. 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!!
  2. Hey, can anyone who got in to Simmons tell me how they notified you about your financial aid? I applied on the priority deadline of 1/20. Around Feb. 13th, I think, I got a letter saying I needed to complete their financial aid form (not the FAFSA, which I'd already done back in January) before an admission decision could be made, so I did that. I've been told that they send out scholarship info with the admissions packet. I've also been told that it will be mailed to me later this month. Someone else on this forum said that the info was emailed to them. I guess I'm just wondering what the heck is going on. I tried to call the admissions office to find out, but they put me through to the director of admissions and he sounded like he was in a real hurry so I didn't push it. Any insight would be much appreciated. I've pretty much made myself sick worrying about this. Edit: Forgot to mention I got my acceptance letter on February 23rd.
  3. Basically what the title says. I am not interested in living in New York and would like to do the field placement where I intend to live. I am waiting to see how much the school will offer me as far as tuition. I am also considering Simmons. Would love to hear thoughts! Thank you in advance!
  4. Having many shared sleepless nights about which is best. One provides many clinical courses, while the other provides more field work. I am in Southern California and it pays to go with big names like USC, and or locally with the Cal States. I am single mom and will be doing online program. Any advise about the programs. I noticed people asking the same question but not posting back. I wish this site had more support from students experiences with the programs they selected.
  5. Hi, I am currently trying to decide between 2 online MSW programs, USC and Simmons College. Has anyone attended or is currently attending either program that can give me feedback? One of the major deciding factors for me is the length of each program. I was accepted into both Full Time programs, USC being a few months shorter than Simmons. Any help would be much appreciated!
  6. I've been accepted to both ASU and Simmons MSW online programs. I'm leaning towards ASU because of affordability and completing a full-time program while being able to work more than at Simmons, but Simmons has a great rep and I had a much more pleasant experience with Simmons going through the application process. Simmons seems to be way more hands-on and ASU seems more DIY. I would love to hear from anyone in either online program about your experiences. Thank you!
  7. Hello all! I graduated last year from a small private women's college with a BA in History. I didn't intend to go for my masters degree (this decision was made due to family health issues that have since been resolved, not a lack of interest in studying at the masters level), but after months of frustration with a job search and a change in my family's situation, I decided to apply to both of my "dream schools" on a whim. Well, I've been accepted at both. I was accepted to Simmons with a small scholarship (not enough to cover more than two credits a semester), and after visiting the campus and the department I'd be studying with, I'm in love with the history department and not much else about the school. I'm not crazy about Boston as a city (sorry!), seeing as Simmons is a women's college (for undergrads, coed grad programs) it felt so much like my undergrad school that I was almost uncomfortable (I'm looking for a totally different experience than I had in undergrad), and after much research it seems like the only neighborhoods I'd be able to afford in Boston are a good distance from the school itself. I was accepted to City College in NYC with no apparent funding (however, even without funding it's much more affordable than Simmons with funding), and I absolutely love the neighborhood it's in, I love New York City itself, and even though it's much more expensive to live in even the more affordable neighborhoods in New York City than it is to live in my home state, the prices for apartments near City College totally beat out the prices in Boston. City College seems like the clear choice, but I'm afraid to turn down Simmons. They've worked with me personally on so many levels, given me gracious extensions in making my decisions, and I know that with it being a smaller school, I'd be able to get much more assistance academically and when it came to internships and such. My family cannot offer me any financial assistance, and I'm pretty sure that unless CC offers me an assistantship, or Simmons comes through with a job that they've very tentatively informed me about (not even offered, just informed), I'll be on the hook for all of my tuition and living expenses, most likely through loans. I'd be very grateful for any insight that any of you would be able to offer! Thank you!
