SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Just wanted to guage some opinions here. If you had to decide between the two schools, which one would you rather attend? USC Pros: Doctorate, #1 in the country, better connections upon graduation. CONS: Expensive CSUN Pros: A lot cheaper, smaller class size. CONS: Masters, good school? I am leaning in favor of CSUN. The PT field is going to be in demand so regardless if you have a DPT or MPT i think you will still be able to compete for the same job. You will also come out of school with a lot less debt. Do the pros of attending a nationally ranked school outweigh the cost? Will USC really help that much in getting a better job? Any opinions would help, thanks.
