The M.Ed. School Counseling program at LU is in transition to becoming CACREP accredited, which is important in a school counseling program, unbeknownst to me before beginning the program. Also as a blended program, the majority of classes are online, with 4 classes or "intensives" are on campus and last a week. The intensives can be a lot of work, but are also a lot of fun as you meet people in your field, which all have valuable advice. The campus is also a lot of fun, with the SnoFlex and other things to do nearby.

The biggest downside to the current program is that students outside the Lynchburg, VA area are responsible for finding their own internship placements, as well as satisfying state requirements. It is a very confusing process and without somewhat of individualized help, it makes it a bit overwhelming for those that do not already have a job in the schools.

I chose LU because it allowed me to live where I wanted and the cost was a lot less compared to other graduate programs. I hear from my friends in regular programs (not online) and there is more support available in terms of satisfying state requirements and finding internship placements.
