Hello, I am currently a 4th year student at Oakland University. My major is Health Science with conc. in Pre-PT. I have all my pre-requisites out of the way, except for Precalc, which I plan to have taken my last semester. I applied early decision to Oakland, and I fit the bill for an average student accepted in the last cycle. I have a 3.75 cumulative and a 3.6 science GPA. I scored a 152 and 154 on the verbal and quantitative sections of the GRE, respectively (a 4.0 on the writing if that even matters). I have three outstanding letters of recommendation. One from the head of the Health Science department, a member of the adjunct faculty as well as being a practicing PT, and my current employer at the clinic I work at (who personally let me read the letter, and feel that letter sells my application). I have observation hours at a number of settings, including inpatient. I wrote a well-thought out essay explaining my role as a future therapist in the ongoing process towards Healthy People 2020. Lastly, the director of the Health Professions at Central Michigan University assured me that my credentials are strong enough to get in SOMEwhere. I was feeling fairly confident in my application, until classes started today. I noticed that there are many Pre-PT students in my classes, and they have a diverse background as well. I regret not having a super diverse background displayed in my education, but it stings to think that students from many other schools are applying to the same program and there is nothing more I can do to strengthen my chances. I guess I just needed to vent somewhere, but have been bottling up my anxiety the past week .
