Career Preparation
What letter grade would you give your school on how well it prepares students for a career in the real world?

I also have an MSW from the University of WA (1991). It was better at "real world" preparation, MOSTLY in that there was a 6 month internship the first year and a 9 month intership the second year. The school wasn't totally giving me what I wanted, so I chose (and was ABLE to choose) my internships in mental health VERY carefuly.

I have no clue any more. Computers were new-ish and basic in 1989-1991. I don't really know how to grade it now. (re: question below)
