Quick run down on school stuff...
Haven't secured internship yet.
Will start volunteering again at the private clinic and maybe even the hospital soon.
My anatomy and physiology class starts Monday. I have to take it again because to apply to Duke you have to have taken it within 5 years of applying there. BOOOOOOOOOO!
Don't have to take the extra stat courses to apply to UNC, so the letter of appeal and all that is out the window thank GOD!
Decided that I will apply to 4 schools: DUKE, UNC-Chapel Hill, East Carolina, and George Washington just for kicks. My first choice is UNC. Tuition plays a HUGE role in that choice. Lemme break it down...2 years @ UNC = 1 year @ Duke...3 years @ UNC aka the entire program = 1 year at GW. ECU is like 3 g's more than UNC which is grrrrrrrrrrrrreat! So yeah I wanna be a Tarheel first, but if someone else takes me and they don't I won't refuse the offer!
On the UNC application, which isn't available yet but I know what's going to be on it thanks to knowing a recent UNC PT school graduate and a member of the admissions committe, I have to write about myself. A personal statement. Basically selling myself to the school and telling them about who I am. Problem is, I have a hard time putting that down on "paper". I know I am driven, hard working and focused. I stay calm most of the time. That's about all I can think of! I know my statement has to have good hearty stick to your bones substance and so far all I got down is an appetizer :-(
Being that I have family, old friends, school friends, new friends, bloggers that never met me but have been reading about my life for years, associates and the like read my blog I am asking for your help. I am honestly asking for help to write this personal statement. I am NOT fishing for compliments or nothing like that. I just need help and some really good positive words to use that would honestly describe me.
When I spoke with a member of the UNC admissions committee awhile ago, she told me that when I write my statement to write it out to the point that when she read it she'd feel like she knew all about me and not to put down what every other pt school applicant will write down. She said she gets tired of reading the same thing over and over. Oh yeah, easier said than done chicka!
So I'm asking yall to help me sell me. Help me tell the admissions committee all about me in a professional, yet not boring manner.....Peasssss I'll be your friend!
