Yes! It is my 2nd semester in the program. I mean, it is just the beginning so I am not taking courses pertained to my speciality yet. It is more didactic courses but some of them have been tough. However, it is manageable. I was full-time but transitioned to PT this semester so I can keep working full-time. It has been a great balance thus far. However, starting the 3rd year, PT students will transition to FT schedule while attending clinical so that’s when you really need to cut back work hours drastically or stop working!
Merchant90j90, yes it is unfortunate but we have to find our own sites and send them the info 1 year in advance prior to clinical starting. If I were you, I would start networking and contacting literally anyone you know. I live in San Diego so it has been quite tough since I moved back right when I started the program. But do not let this be an obstacle. You have plenty of time if you start now!
Emer-jen-cy, congratulations on getting accepted! That is very exciting news
