Hi everyone! I’m going to graduate from Rutgers Newark in May, with a BSW & psych minor.
I was planning on doing an accelerated MSW next year, although I’m honestly a bit concerned with the speed of the program. I’m not sure if I’ll get into this program at Rutgers (maybe Montclair?)
My boyfriend & I are now looking to possibly move to Orlando/Kissimmee areas (from NJ) with my daughter once I graduate in May. This is mainly due to his job connections & the lower cost of living.
However, I’m seeing that it takes a year to get in-state tuition in Florida. I’m not sure if this would be a substantial difference, since NJ in-state rates are already quite high…
Is this a strict cutoff? Should I apply to public or private schools?
Are there jobs that I could get with a BSW that would pay a livable wage (for at least a year, before getting in-state rates)?
