  1. Hi, I'm a 50+ yo African American female Lupus Survivor hoping to start a new career in clinical social work, preferably working with chronic illness patients in an integrated healthcare setting. My son says this forum was instrumental in his grad school quest. I don't have a BSW, but I have a BS-Biology with a high GPA. I've got some undergraduate biomedical research experience and I'm currently volunteering as a Long-term Care Ombudsman and a CrisisTextLIne counselor. I live in Nashville, so my first choice is the UTK College of Social Work's MSSW program, possibly online for convenience. I'd loved to get feedback regarding both the online & on-campus programs. Is the online program robust? Does it allow for meaningful interaction with professors and other students? Will my background be enough to be a competitive applicant? How competitive are UTKCSW MSSW graduates for job placement? Any insight on scholarships, field placements? Any helpful info you have on UTKCSW is appreciated!
  2. Hello all! Here's the deal: I graduate from the University of Montevallo in May 2018. I'm the former secretary and current VP of NSSLHA. I've done qualitative research in the area of aphasia as primary investigator, and am positive I will be able to get above average recommendation letters from professors. BUT, my GPA is on the low end. I took dual enrollment classes in high school and ended up with several B's and a couple of C's. I didn't know what I wanted to do with my life then, and of course had no idea how competitive SLP programs are. Assuming I get all A's this fall, my GPA will end up being a 3.56. My current GRE score is 294 and 3.5 writing. I'm retaking it in the beginning of November. I'm applying to severallllll schools in the southeast. My top choices are University of Tennessee, University of Memphis, East Tennessee State University and the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill (long shot, I know, but many of their faculty have done research in aphasia and I thought I might have a chance considering my background.) What kind of chances do I have? Any advice as far as personal statements, recommendation letters, etc would be much appreciated!

  4. I received a letter stating that I was placed on the wait list for the University of Tennessee's English Ph.D. prgram (Fall 2017). When I emailed to check to see where I am on the list, they said that they didn't have the list finished yet so they couldn't tell me. But they did say "But if we do get a no from the first round then you are the second person in your division. So it is very likely you would get admission and funding." What does the division part mean, and do you think its likely that I'll get an acceptance offer? This is my first choice in schools, no other acceptances right now, but I still have a few I haven't heard from yet. Thanks!!!
  5. Just got accepted to the MSSW program at UTK! I'm excited but know absolutely nothing about the university, grad life, the area, housing, etc. Any tips tricks and information would be helpful! Also if anyone else is going to University of Tennessee this fall, get psyched!
