They will always need social workers! Good luck! We just may be working together in the future! :) I would def. try to get into the accelerated program if you can. You'll be so glad you did! My grad program was a 2 year progam, but it's taking my 2 1/2 years b/c I'm doing my internship part time. We couldn't afford to put 2 kids in daycare full time on one salary! It's hard enough to pay for the college!
Good luck with all your course work! I know how hard it is to go to school full time with kids! At least it will save you money by going to HCC for your electives. I took a few classes at the USMH campus, but I was going through Frostburg. It's really nice inside, but I hated having to walk to the classes through town at night by myself. Which program are you applying for? I wonder why they only accept applications for Fall students.
