I'm in the process of applying to social work master's programs for the fall of 2009. I have a few quick questions:
1. I ultimately plan on living in New York City and, as such, am primarily applying to schools in the city. If accepted to a school like UC Berkeley, would it be unwise to study there if I intend to immediately return to NY upon completing my program? Any career disadvantages, you think?
2. Although NYU is my first choice, I doubt that I would be able to afford it. I already have undergrad loans and want to minimize my burden upon graduating from an msw program. Do you know of any expensive schools (like NYU & Columbia) that offer scholarship programs? I remember once hearing of a school offering a program through which half of the tuition is covered if you commit to a certain number of years of work in public schools...? Does this ring a bell with anyone?
