Any insider thoughts regarding the U of Washington MSW program?


Recommended Posts

Hi all -- as a prospective MSW student looking for a strong program with a clinical focus, I'm quite impressed with what I've been reading about UW's program. However, for those of you that may be in the program (or recent graduates) would you mind providing a little insight as to what's not discussed in the program brochures? I don't think I've come across a negative comment on these boards, so i just want to make sure I'm not missing something. How has your experience been? Thanks for the help.

I don't have insider thoughts, but I can tell you why I didn't accept my admission offer.

It was a toss up between Chicago and Seattle in terms of location--I choose Chicago--for diversity. This sounds so petty but I wanted some more cultural diversity. Prior to Chicago, I resided in Phoenix, and felt that was a component of my education I was missing. It also helped to receive my internship offer in Chicago before my financial aid offer in Seattle, which got me totally excited... and I'm LOVING it. Funny why we chose the things we do sometimes.
