I'm a first year DPT student in upstate New York. So after both a summer and fall semester, I still have a 4.0 gpa - not that that matters anymore but just to give you an idea of where I'm at gradewise. After these semesters I've learned that I'm really good at studying for exams and practicals, but I feel that I'm forgetting a lot about what I've learned already and it's only been a few weeks off from school. Is this normal to students? Forgetting these things so quickly is starting to scare me about my future of being an actual practicing PT. Also after being around such intelligent people (students, instructors) I'm still not sure if I will be able to see the realm of physical therapy as well as they do/will. If that makes any sense. Are these doubts normal and just all a part of the experience? Or is my future possibly in jeopardy if I see things this way? Some personal experience from current or past students would really help! Thank you.
