So, I'm at the point where I need to assess my future options. I'll try to make it short... I'm from California and I just took my GREs:1240 (540 V - 700 Q), 2.969 gpa. I want to apply to a master's program that can allow me to work with children, adolescents, and young adults in terms of emotional, drug, educational, or abuse problems. I simply want the degree that will give me the most freedom...and the $$ wouldn't hurt either. I know with my GPA, i would have a better chance with getting into an MSW program...I've told people I'm thinking about getting a MSW and they give me funny and almost degrading looks, but I've heard you have more freedom with an LCSW than any other psych Masters. Is this true??? I wouldn't mind working close with students in a school setting, but I don't want to administer IQ tests. Which leads me to the next question: Is there a difference between Educational Psych and School Psych? What can you do with a Masters in counseling psych? Can I do what I want with a Masters in Counseling Psych? What about MFT? So to sum it up: 1. With my GPA and GRE, can I get into mid-tier Masters programs? (school, educ, couseling, sw, or MFT) 2. What is the best matching Masters program for me? (most freedom, working with children-young adults with emotional, drug, school problems) 3. What is the difference between Educational and School Psychology? 4. Can I do what I want with Masters in Counseling and MFT? If you need more info from me please ask!! Thanks for your time everyone!
