Which graduate school in counseling should I choose?
I have been accepted to counseling related programs in these schools. I don't know which major and which school would be better for finding a good job in the future. These are the schools that have accepted me: Boston University -- counseling with specialization in school or community counseling University of Southern California -- Marriage Family Therapy University of Massachusetts Boston -- Mental Health Counseling Washington State University -- Counseling in School or Community University of New Hampshire -- Mental Health Counseling The other schools I applied to results have not come out, some are in social work. I have heard that social work provides a more flexible job option. But I think I am for interested in studying psychology oriented counseling. I do not know if school or community counseling, or MFT would be better. What is the job outlook for the three? Considering the location, the major, to find jobs with good salary etc. Which school should I choose? I think I have more interest in either community counseling or marriage family therapy. How do these two differ in later career except that MFT clients are couples and family. And as a Chinese American, where would I find work as a counselor/therapist more easily? Would California be a better choice or other states? I am considering now Boston, Washington State or USC.

If you are interested in counseling then I would suggest doing a counseling degree and not doing a social work degree. Social work is much more broad and flexible, but you may not be as happy with the social justice focus and attention to larger systems... More
