Please help! 

I am currently trying to decide between an MSW program at either CSUN or SDSU. There are a lot of pros and cons to both, but I am interested to see what those here on the forum could tell me about these programs. What should I be placing most emphasis on when deciding? What are the reputations for these schools? How are both schools in regards to preparing students for licensing? 

CSUN:

Pros: close to home (could potentially save money by living at home); an urban generalist approach (will maybe give me a more well-rounded experience); capstone project in final year; Los Angeles is a booming city for social work 

Cons: maybe the "safe" or boring option because it is close to home; maybe not ranked as high as SDSU (I am not sure about the reputations) 

SDSU:

Pros: move to San Diego would be new and exciting; concentrations might allow me to become more of an expert in one topic

Cons: Might cost most with living expenses

 

Tuition is about the same. I have received some aid from SDSU, but I have not gotten my financial aid package from CSUN yet so it is hard to say what the final numbers will be.

 

I would really appreciate any tips or insight that anyone could give me on CSUN and/or SDSU's programs, San Diego and Northridge in general, and simply the entire deciding process. It is a big decision, but such a hard one to make!

 

Thank you!!
