Hi Rita, did u pass out in 2002?
Both Florida and Texas does not require one to be a Masters on higher in PT to be licensed. Since you graduated between 98-09 the credentialing agencies will use the CWT 4( [link] your transcript evaluation. According to CWT4 one will need 150 credits in total with 60 general credit and 90 professional credits. If you would get that, plus the TOEFL scores ( If u have done a successful TOEFL test in the past 2 years, it will be good. Even if u did one before that and had it included in your credential evaluation by any means, it will still help.), and the Jurisprudence exam, it wil help u be eligible for NPTE application.

Another factor that might need attention would be your current status in the US. If you are on a dependent visa, then you will need type 1 certification/visa screening to be eligible for a H1b (work visa) application. Type 1 screening requires one to have a min 4 year post secondary education(not sure whether they require one to have a master degree in PT).

You also might want to keep an eye on reexamination process if you would, at the worst, had to retake the test. Texas requires continuing education after 2 attempts or so, not sure about Florida..please check with their state PT Board website for the same.
Both Florida and Texas has great places to be living in, it will depend on your preferences for a busy city life or not so busy city life. High end cities both in Florida and Texas has higher cost of living as would any other major cities across the US. Florida has more weather disturbances than Texas as far as i know, but many would agree that it is more attractive than Texas.
Hope it helps, sorry for a late reply! Hope u have a great time, Rita.
