The School of Social Work at the University of Missouri is a scary place. It definitely has its bright points and good people. But there are also some good reasons why it is so far down in the rankings. Before entering this program, Google some MSW alumni and ask them specific questions about particular professors who teach the courses you will be required to take. Example, to get the conversation rolling: ask whether they observed incidents of classroom behavior that depart dramatically from social work ethics. (Do yourself a favor and look at the ethical guidelines in the NASW Code before calling.) Another possibility: visit the campus and see whether you can get students to talk frankly and openly about their experiences in those classes. My advice: get yourself into a program with dedicated professors who love the social work profession and are not so predominantly oriented toward their own personal issues.
