Hi, Everyone

I've recently been accepted into both McGill and U of T Master of Social Work programs with advanced standing. I'm really torn at this point. I feel like McGill has the better reputation but UofT has more practice classes than McGill. McGill's program includes completing a research project and 2 research classes whereas UofT has 1 research class and the rest are practical classes. My goal is to practice clinical social work.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

I actually don't think UofT is great for social work (obviously it's not BAD but I think, for instance, York has the better program). I don't know anything about McGill's program at all so I can't help much on that front. I'm inclined to say "pick McGill" because it was my number one school that I never ended up applying to, but either way, I don't think you can go wrong with either school in terms of getting a job afterwards. Both have great reputations.

I know someone who is currently doing the Masters of Social Work at U of T and she seems to be really enjoying it. I have no idea about McGill.
