I used to dream of the day that it was my turn to start my journey toward becoming a professional in my chosen career.
When the time came for me to decide whether I would pursue a doctorate in physical therapy — about halfway through my undergrad education — I was excited but also filled with doubt and self-criticism. Did I do enough to earn a spot in a DPT program? If I do get in, am I capable of successfully completing PT school? These questions constantly were on my mind.
