  1. Does anyone have more details/opinions abut Villanova?
  2. Hi all! I am starting to get responses from Masters in Counseling. I hope to apply to move on to doctoral work in the future so I'd really love some input on what I should be looking for when considering which school to attend. Many of the schools I have applied to offer seemingly great research opps so I am wondering how I should compare them and if there is anything specific that I should prioritize.
