Just graduated with a degree in social work and honestly I regret going to Carlow. Most professors I had were great social workers but terrible professors. The school was incredibly cliquey and if you weren?t in the clique, forget about extra curriculars. I felt like I learned nothing not from lack of trying, but from lack of teaching skills as opposed to story telling. At least for the social work program, I would suggest going elsewhere.
