Hi all, I have been accepted to a couple schools to earn my MA in education and single subject credential in social science. My choices are Pepperdine, LMU, and Claremont Graduate University. Can anyone who has studied at these schools give me any insight? They all seem to have their pros and cons. At first, CGU was my first choice since their teacher internship program seems to be the most rigorous and best way to train teachers, but it's the most expensive ($1,600/unit!!!), far away (I live near downtown LA) and I'll have to quit my job since I'll be student teaching the whole time I'm there. They did award me 40% of my tuition though. LMU and Pepperdine are about even, but Pepperdine has only offered me 3,200$ in grants per year (it's about $30K+ a year), which is less than what I expected, and I haven't heard from LMU yet. I feel Pepperdine's education school is a diploma mill as they didn't personally call me or ask for an interview (the other 2 did), which I was a little put off by. Both schools will allow me keep my job which will be very important since I need to support my wife. Any thoughts and insights would be much appreciated!!
