This is what I have gathered,

As far as the prestige of the school goes, it really is going to depend on where I might be looking for jobs after grad school. If I am looking to be in Boston, it would make more sense to go to Simmons because there are many Simmons alums in the area. However, if I went the administrative route in Seattle for example, they might not be especially impressed by Simmons (since it reputable within the social work field in the local area) but would recognize an ivy league school like Columbia of course. I get the sense that if you are going clinical rather than administrative, experience is probably more important than the prestige of the school you go to. But the bottom line is Columbia would be better on the large scale, but if I'm planning on staying local Simmons would be better.

I can see myself become more involved in program development/the leadership aspect of things after getting some years of experience working directly with people. Columbia could give me a leg up. Nonprofit management and all its financial aspects are not something I want to do right off the bat though, I am primarily interested in the clinical track. I'm gonna make a list of pros and cons.
