  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. 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?
  3. 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!
  4. Hi! I'm making my decision as to where to go to graduate school next fall to get my master's in social work. I've been accepted to USC, NYU, and Columbia and I'm having a very very very hard time making a decision! I've received scholarships from NYU and USC, which help with the tuition, but by no means cover it. With all being said and done USC will still wind up costing me about 80k for the two years (before financial aid) NYU will wind up costing me 60k (before financial aid) and Columbia will be a whopping 100k (before financial aid or scholarship info). I want to focus on clinical work and eventually open a private practice working with adults. I currently live in Los Angeles and would LOVE to find a valid reason to stay here. I went to college in NY so I'm not entirely opposed to moving there, but I do think I want to end up back in Los Angeles to practice. Does anyone have any input as to which school has the best clinical program?? I've heard USC sort of churns out MSW students, but I think it looks like an amazing school. NYU also looks incredible, I'm just not positive I want to move back to New York, and to be honest I think Columbia is the lowest on my list because it focuses more on policy. So any input would be AMAZING!!! Thanks
  5. Hello, I am wondering if anyone plans on attending Ohio State in August or if anyone has attended the program. Would love to know your thoughts! Pros and Cons.
  6. For folks who graduated from/are attending Smith's social work program in 2018 and beyond: Did you enjoy/find value in the research sequence that replaced the thesis requirement? Is there an option/possibility to write a thesis even though it's not required? If anyone has completed/is completing a research practicum, any experience shared would be much appreciated! I'm bummed that the thesis isn't part of the program anymore. I'm from southern CA, and most local MSW programs do not have a thesis requirement. Interestingly, only a handful of state schools include a thesis option.
  7. Starting this thread for my fellow applicants to Case Western's MSSA/MSW program for the fall of 2020! Has anyone heard back yet? :)
  8. I've recently applied to College of Staten Island for Fall 2020. I submitted my application on 2/19. Wondering if anyone else is waiting on the reply as well.
  9. I've recently applied to Stony Brook for Fall 2020. I submitted my application on 2/26. Wondering if anyone else is waiting on the reply as well.
  10. I am thinking of applying to PhD Studies in the next maybe 2 years. What might be a good strategic move for someone with both a BSW and and MSW (non clinical)? I want to go to a school with a robust research support but to have another degree in Social Work would be overkill. I want to obtain a PhD that speaks to the current economic climate if possible. Also gotta add I've been out of school for 10+ years and out of this game for quite some time. My options are a PhD program at UofC, UofA or another school that has a distance based PhD program.
  11. Hello everyone! Curious to see if anyone else applied to Cal State East Bay and has anyone heard back?? I applied in early Dec before the deadline and wanted to know if anyone knows when decisions will come out? I checked today Jan 23, 2020 and so far NADA.
  12. I just posted this and noticed it vanished? Not sure what happened. I wanted to ask if anyone knows why social workers don't have a national union? As future social workers what are your thoughts about this? I know that back in the day nurses were not being paid well until they advocated for higher wages and got unionized. I feel like social workers are often underpaid, overworked and undervalued. I feel like now more than ever we should be advocating for ourselves. Is there anything we can do about this? Anywho what do ya'll think about this? How do you feel going into the field the way things currently are? What would you like to see change, or improve?
  13. I've applied to Stony Brook's MSW/social work program in their Manhattan location (decisions are delayed due to the virus). I'd appreciate hearing about the experience from current or former students, even in the main campus. Here are some specific questions: 1. How were the professors? 2. Was there student diversity and stimulating discussions? 3. Did the connections you made help your career? I'm new to this and I'm not sure anyone would see this. I am grateful for any response I get.
  14. Hi folks! My name is Brendon and I used this site a lot back in 2016 when I was applying to MSW programs. Since the site was so helpful then, I wanted to create a thread for those looking into PhD programs in Social Work to be admitted in 2020. I started looking into programs in late 2018 and began making faculty connections then. Over the past month or so, I've officially decided to apply. I haven't 100% decided on where I'm applying but I have a few programs in mind. Those include: (1) University of Michigan, (2) Washington University in St. Louis (WashU), (3) Michigan State University, (4) University of Denver, (5) Hunter College, and lastly, (6) University of Washington. I'd like to only apply to 3-4 schools, so I'm currently trying to eliminate 2-3 from my list. My main priority is having a program that feels supportive of me, my interests, and my professional goals. I specifically want to work with LGBTQ+ people (even more specifically, trans and nonbinary folks), so finding an affirming school is also a priority. How are other folks feeling? Do you have a few schools in mind? What are your main areas of interest? I really wanted to create this thread as a way for us to support one another and possibly get answers! It's nice to know you aren't alone when going through this process and that there's an entire community of people going through something similar.

    MSW UNC 3 Year

    Hi everyone! I have not seen many people post about the MSW 3 year Distance program at UNC Chapel Hill. Has anyone applied for it?
  16. Hi! Applied to and got accepted to MSW programs at UNC Chapel Hill, Columbia, U Michigan, and U Chicago. Really really thankful, but also having a lot of trouble making a decision or even narrowing it down (made a very detailed Google spreadsheet, color coded and everything haha). Any help or advice from current students on how you made a decision or fellow applicants who have decided, etc. would be super helpful! A few things about me/to note: -I applied for the community change/macro/generalist area of practice for each school - Currently doing community organizing work and looking to supplement that work through an MSW-- want to be part of a program with a lot of options for me, with a real commitment to systems change and so a pretty much exclusively clinically focused school wouldn't be a good fit for me -Not a resident of any of these states (currently live in DC) -$$ is a huuuge factor (duh) I've gotten some scholarships from every school except UNC so far, but it's still expensive and daunting (my undergrad had really good financial aid and I had no $ so I've never had to take any loans) -Would love to (ideally) visit a school before I accept, but $$ is a factor and with time constraints it might not be realistic to visit all 4 in time, hence my desire to narrow down the options. Sorry for the long post! Anything is helpful, so thanks in advance!!!
  17. Hey all! I didn't see many forums for the counseling and other related master's and I've been obsessively starting to check my email for interview invites so put yours below! School Name: Program: (MHC, MSW, MFT, etc.) Date invite received: Interview date: if you want
  18. Hi all! I applied to the 2-year full-time MSW program at UNCW (UNC Wilmington) starting in Fall 2020 but I have yet to hear back from them! I applied by the Priority Deadline and just wondering when other people submitted their applications and if they've heard back yet or when they expect to hear back. Good luck to everyone!
  19. Alright y'all, someone ease my nerves. I have applied to six schools for the Fall 2020 MSW program and so far haven't heard anything back. I'm starting to panic seeing that some people are waiting on a one more response or have heard back from all their schools. I applied to the following: -UT Austin -Ohio State -University of Georgia -UNC Chapel Hill -U of Michigan -Columbia Help a girl out! Have you heard back? Thanks! ❤️
  20. Hey! Has anyone heard anything yet about their admissions decision for Advanced Standing at UNC Chapel Hill? I'm getting more and more anxious everyday!
  21. Hi All - I'm currently a corporate paralegal that recently realized that I'd like to pivot to a career in mental health. My vision for a career is clear: I want to work towards a private practice that will mainly service the adult male population. I've also been working on a marketing business on the side, so I think I may want to split my time with these careers in the future. I'm extremely excited that I've finally developed a vision for a career that would fulfill me, but money is a huge issue I need to consider; honestly, it's making me question whether I should even pursue this new path. I'm already in about $115,000 in debt and I know people don't get into mental health for the money. I'm currently making about $80,000 for my current paralegal job, so it pains me to know that if I pursue a career in mental health, not only will I have to quit my well-paying job eventually, but I will likely be in more debt than I'm in now making less (at least at the beginning of my career). Assuming you think this path is worth pursuing (feel free to share that with me if that's the case) my question is twofold: (1) what degree should I pursue to maximize my earning potential while keeping my tuition low? I've looked at MSW programs, but I know PhD is in option especially when considering income potential. (2) Is it realistic to make six figures as a talk therapist or am I just living in fantasy land? Thanks in advance for the advice!
  22. Hi Everyone! I created this topic to just introduce anyone who is accepted their admission to UIC, contemplating on accepting admission, or pending acceptance! Ask away and I hope to meet some of you all starting Fall 2020!
  23. Hello, Has anyone ever applied to loyola university of chicago msw program? Do you recommend it? It does not look really competitive but I was really interested in their MSW Online Bilingual program! It's weird because they even say you can submit it without actually filling it out completely and can finish it once you submit it? Also it's free to apply! So I just wanted some feedback for those who have done it, and what you thought? Anyone thinking of applying?
  24. who is applying to SJSU? I heard that the hybrid program is the most competitive and that's they one I want but I will also settle for the 2 year campus option. Has anyone submitted their application? I can't believe they allowed a 3,000 word limit on their essays. That's a lot.
  25. Hey y’all! I’m applying to the advanced standing track with a focus in policy. Is anyone else struggling with the essays?
