Today is March 1st.
Not usually a day of importance for me, but today was the deadline.
The LAST day for me to accept/ decline at the PT programs I was deciding between.
The day I would 100% KNOW what school I’d be attending starting this summer.
I was very fortunate to be accepted at 4 schools (a 5th I applied to doesn’t send out acceptances until mid-March, but it wasn’t my top choice so I feel that whether I get in or not doesn’t affect my decision), and while it was amazing to have options (I know a lot of people who only got in to 1 school or didn’t get in at all!), this was a REALLY hard decision!
I sought opinions and feedback from everywhere and everyone.
I visited each school. Went on tours. Talked with current students.
And stressed. A lot.
Last week I made a decision and put down a deposit at a school.
But until today, I hadn’t actually sent back the “thanks but no thanks” to the other schools, so it didn’t seem quite final.
Today, it’s final.
I always said that staying focused and getting through the pre-requites to apply to programs would be the hardest part for me. It’s taken me longer than I originally planned/ anticipated, but I’m here. I made it.
And in June I’ll be heading up to Boston to begin a Doctor of Physical Therapy program!
