During my application process, I ended-up applying to three different institutes for my MSW – the University of Denver and two other top ranked schools. I was accepted into the three different programs, but I made the decision to attend the University of Denver for a number of reasons.
First and foremost, I was attracted to the core curriculum that is provided at DU’s Graduate School of Social Work. There is a multitude of classes that the program offers, and students can tailor the course work in their concentration year to how they feel best suits their educational needs. Secondly, the admissions team was very helpful with questions I had throughout my application process.
One of the biggest components for my decision to attend DU was the financial assistance that I was offered; of course, finances are based on individual need, but, as noted on our website, the program provides financial assistance to the majority of incoming students. Lastly, I chose University of Denver because I thought Denver would be an excellent city for all of the above: attending school, completing my internship, networking for a perspective job, and, most importantly, enjoying life.
