PT Schools Must Be Doing Something Right

Published May 7, 2012 2:03 PM by Lauren Rosso

A big group of people from my class is going on a camping and rafting trip this week before we start back to class next Monday. I find it very hard to believe that one year ago, I didn't know any of these people. I know I have blogged about my classmates in the past, but as time goes on, I feel more and more lucky that I am surrounded by such amazing people.

A lot of my friends are in graduate school pursuing a bunch of different degrees, and none of them seem to be having the same success with their classmates. I'm not sure if "PT people" tend to be like-minded, but there are definite differences between their experiences and mine. My younger sister is in pharmacy school and she's always surprised when I tell her about the different outings or events that my class has planned. From what I understand, the people in her program are very competitive and unfortunately that type of atmosphere doesn't foster friendships. The same is true for other friends in medical and law school -- none of them seem to have the class-wide connections that I have experienced.

PT schools are definitely doing something right. The experience that I've had is definitely a great way to affirm that I chose the correct profession. Like I have said before, the relationships that you form with your classmates are one of the most important aspects of your experience in PT school. It has made such a difference for me, and I consider myself very lucky to be in such a supportive and positive environment.
