So here's my deal: I live in L.A. and I am applying to Pepperdine University for my MFT. I want to apply to other schools in L.A for my master's. So far I have looked at Argosy, Antioch, Phillips, and School of Chicago. I am SO CONFUSED by the difference between a known university like Pepperdine and these other schools??? Are all these schools accredited the same? Will I be able to practice as a therapist regardless of which school I go to? Are there tiers of which grad schools are higher ranked? Please help me. I am applying for the spring and deadlines are coming up. I am new to this site, now sure how everything works... but if you know a lot about my questions please message me on here. I'd love to talk more to you about this.
