    MSW Fall 2019 Decisions!!!

    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??

    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!

    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.

    MSW Interview Attire

    Hi guys. I have an interview with a joint msw mft program and am wondering about appropriate attire. I've seen general advice but was wondering if anyone had specific tips for social work grad school interviews. It's academic but also a "professional" program so not sure which way to go with it. Thanks!

    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?

    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!
  11. 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!
  12. 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?

    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?

    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.

    Statistics requirement?

    Hi, all. I apologize for creating so many threads but I figured this one might be applicable to others as well. My problem is this: the only school that I have applied to this cycle and one which I will definitely attend if I am admitted, has a pesky statistics requirement that I somehow didn't notice when I was doing research on the school. (I know I should have assumed that this would be the case - believe me, I am beating myself up about this enough already.) Anyway, this wouldn't be too much of a problem except that I recently moved states and so if I were to take a statistics course at a community college here the tuition would be astronomical (upwards of $1000). I am wondering if anyone here has ever found themselves in a similar position? Do I just have to eat the expense? I'm super mad at myself because if I had noticed this last spring I could have taken the class at a community college before I moved and I would not be having this problem. At an info session I recently attended, the director of admissions and financial aid specified that one can be admitted provisionally without having taken a statistics course (thank God). I am wondering if they might be similarly flexible on WHEN I take the class? If I could take it during the fall semester that would help me so much, as I would qualify for in-state tuition then. I guess the only way to know for sure is to ask the school, but I'd rather wait until I am actually admitted before I start bugging them about bending the rules, lol. Anyway, I was just wondering if anyone had any advice on cheaper alternatives (if such alternatives even exist).

    Choosing a Grad Program

    I am having a hard time choosing a graduate program. I am really interested in working with survivors of sexual and domestic violence as a LCSW. I am hoping to stay on the west coast, though would consider other schools if they seem like the perfect fit. I am finishing my BSW at Portland State University in Oregon now. I am not opposed to going to grad school here, but also wanting to look at all of my options. I am really wanting to specialize in trauma and domestic/sexual violence. Also interested in feminist therapy. i am looking for recommendations of programs that would be a good fit for me. Where should I start looking into? Who's research should I be following? Thanks in advance for any advice!
  18. Hi all! I want to apply to grad school this year to obtain my MSW, but I am concerned due to my undergraduate record. I attended a UC and graduated with a 2.85 GPA. I really want to attend Portland State University, and was wondering if any can tell me if this is possible? Do I have a chance? My Upper Division GPA that they ask for is a 3.4. I graduated in 2017 and have worked as an Interventionist to at-risk youth in my community, and am considering doing this another year for more experience. All help, advice, and comments are appreciated! Thank you :)

    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?
  20. Hi all, I've been doing some reading on this topic, and I keep seeing that some states give LCSWs more "power," while others give more power to LPCs, and in other states there's minimal difference, etc.. My question is how do I find this information for the states I am interested in? If it helps, I'm looking at schools in Texas, New York, Colorado, and Massachusetts. I'm just not sure where to look. Thanks for any help.
  21. Long post ahead, but will try to make it as short and easy to follow as possible. Also would love to answer any questions to provide clarification! I am 21 years old and will be graduating college (NY) this spring with a BSW. My girlfriend graduated this past winter (Alabama) with a BSW & a BS in psychology. We’ve been in a long distance relationship for a few years now. As post-graduation life approaches, we are taking serious strides to close the gap between us and begin a life together. After graduation, my girlfriend moved back home (Michigan). We both plan on pursuing an Advanced Standing MSW program. Recently, I’ve been giving a JD/MSW a thought, but more likely than not, I will also be pursuing an MSW. We both applied and were accepted to the University of Michigan. We were super happy to get in, as it is a competitive program with a concentration of macro social work that we both have a strong preference over clinical social work. Upon schooling, we both would like to work in similar career fields, as hinted by our interest above. I’d like to get involved in politics, advocacy/legislation work. My girlfriend would like program evaluation type of work along with other realms of macro focused social work. Hence why we both really enjoyed UM’s curriculum and structure. A major issue, more for me, is the cost. For 1 year, 3 semesters, the advising offices told me it’d cost $23,000 per semester (being an out of state student). This is without any merit or need based aid. While I have a high enough GPA which would MAYBE grant me some scholarships, my parents make too much where I’d get any need based aid. My girlfriend would be paying $14,000 per semester (being a Michigan resident). Since we do envision a life together, we broke down how much debt we’d have. *this is not taking into account scholarships, loans, grants or any loan forgiveness programs in the future.* UM: $23,000 x 3 = $69,000 $14,000 x 3 = $42,000 for a total of $111,000. With the shear cost, we both began rethinking this route. A local university closer to me (University at Buffalo) would cost me $8,000 per semester for a total of $24,000 for the year. For her (out of state) would cost $12,000 per semester for a total of $36,000. A grand total around $60,000 combined. However, from what I’ve heard from peers and faculty at my school now, UB is geared more towards clinical students. We both have taken our fair share of micro focused classes and really want to expand into the macro side of social work. I’ve read on here that the prestige of an MSW program doesn’t make much difference. Also, we do not planning on living in Michigan or New York upon graduation. So we are torn. Do we save a ton of money (collectively speaking) and attend a program where our interests aren’t necessarily met, or do we attend a more prestigious program more geared to our interests? (and be in double the amount of debt?) We really don’t want to do any more time apart from each other & want to make the smartest, most responsible decision. Any thoughts and feedback would be appreciated!

    Just Applied!

    I turned in my applications for University of Wisconsin, Arizona State University, and University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee! I'm debating on whether to turn my Simmons application in or not... This whole ordeal has been a lot of work and stress! Let me know if you are also applying or if you have any questions about the process, I can at least give you my side of things.

    Online MSW Programs

    I am looking into getting my MSW online. Any suggestions on accredited online programs? I am looking into oncology or geriatric social work. Thanks!
  24. I submitted my application for graduate school in the beginning of December. I applied to the Ohio State Univeristy and they are rolling admissions, so I should be hearing back within a week or so. However, I am very nervous. I want to feel like I’m good enough to get into the program but I’m just not sure. I have my bachelors in psychology. My GPA in undergrad was a 3.026 and 3.025 (I didn’t have to take the GRE because of this). While I was in undergrad, I didn’t have any experience whatsoever. No internships, organizations or volunteer work. Not having any experience is what is making me doubtful. I know most msw programs like experience, but do I stand a chance of getting accepted without any? I feel like I can gain experience in grad school. Is anyone else in my shoes or have gotten into any grad programs with ZERO experience?
  25. Hey guys! I have been spending the last two months or so working on my personal statement and have read numerous samples and tips, but still do not feel totally confident in it. At this point, I am just looking for someone to possibly help me by reading over it and providing their honest feedback. Or if you have a personal statement that you are working on as well, I would be happy to provide you feedback. Thanks in advance!
