So, I got into the Jane Addams College of Social Work here in Chicago so that I can finally receive my Master of Social Work! I'm rather excited but now I'm in somewhat of a bind. I originally applied to be part time so that I can work during the day and go to class at night. That's the only way I can really afford to get my degree. I petitioned to go Full Time for I was informed that there was a Graduate Assistant-ship position in my department was going to be available.
Here's the but...
Well, turns out that there isn't. Fantastic... Now I have to do the embarrassing thing of calling the Director of Admissions and Financial Aid ask to stay Part Time and void my petition to go Full Time. *sigh*
I still to have to contact the assistant to the dean of my department to see if anything can be worked out (ie. Tuition waivers, etc). Any advice of how I should approach it?
