Hi, I am trying to decide between Thomas Jefferson University in Center City, PA and Touro University, in Henderson, NV. I am from Central NJ and in the long run would like to work/live in the East coast. Nevada is the highest paying state for OTs, which is a reason I would go to Touro then work there, and move back to to the East in the future. Thomas Jefferson is ranked #6 for OT schools in the country and is located on the East coast. Does ranking and a school's name matter in the future when I go to apply to for a job? Will someone hire me for getting my Doctorate from Thomas Jefferson over Touro University? I am torn between picking Touro to get the experience of living in the West coast, being in less debt, and working in the highest paying state for experience, then relocating to the East coast. I am looking for any suggestions/advice/insight! Thank you!!
