The Good:
 
5th highest salary in the nation, 2nd lowest cost of living in the nation. No clinical internship. Provides temporary license to foreign therapists.

The Bad:
 
Licensure in Country of Training is required. 60 gen ed credits, 72 prof ed credits (90 prof ed credits after 2008), 15-23 clinical hours required. This is very difficult is you just have a bachelor's degree.

Overall:
 
This is a very difficult state to get into for a foreign therapist with a bachelor's degree only.

This state has very low cost of living, and very high salary. However, Texas is hard to apply to. It's like an entirely different country, it has different rules and standards, mostly higher that other states.

Bad: The board only accepts upto 12 credits through CLEP. That's a big drawback.
