In response to my previous response, two hours after writing my post about doubts my dad brought in the mail. One of the envelopes was addressed to me from USC. I opened it expecting it to be a rejection letter since I thought I'd find out in April or May.
To my surprise...I GOT IN!! I was and still am in complete shock. USC is the number one ranked Physical Therapy school in the nation! I guess I shouldn't doubt myself so much and the fortune cookie was right.
Even though I would love to have a USC degree, I sadly will have to decline my acceptance. It is $50,000/year for three years not including living expenses. It isn't the best area to live in and it's too far for a commute. Also they want a $1,000 deposit by February 11th, that's 8 days away.
Although it breaks my heart to have to turn down a USC degree, I will be holding out for the other cheaper schools which include Chapman University, CSU Long Beach, Western University of Health Sciences, and St. Augustine in San Marcos. Hopefully I can get into one of these schools.
