Hey I'm from San Francisco but went to SJSU for my undergrad. Both cities are very diverse and great to live in! Sf rent is DEFINITELY more expensive than Sj. As for the programs, I am not too sure.
I am planning to apply to programs in Fall 2021 and I have a question about SJSU's program for @slptobe! that might be helpful for you as well.
I know that the SJSU speech program is a Masters in Education with a concentration in speech. So If you plan on working in the school system and with pediatrics I think this program will be perfect for that. This might be a silly question but my question is do you think the title of it being a Masters in Education rather than a Masters in Speech Pathology matters? Does the program prepare you for all settings (exp. hospital)? I have volunteered at a hospital and I've worked in a special education classroom before and the techniques with both populations are quite different.
