So I go to a school that’s primarily dedicated to medical specialties. We have nursing school, physical therapy, resp. Tech school, massage therapy, CNA, medical assistant, all kinds of things.

Hello! First off congratulations on all of your wonderful accomplishments!!! Second off I feedback here! (I’m undergrad atm) As far as hours go I have a wide variety of site where I’ve done hours, 2 of which are Army bases (I’m trying to be an Army PT), I’m also in-charge of all of the injured cadets within my battalion (I’m in Army ROTC), and next march I will be going to Baja, Mexico for a week to practice. If my GPA isn’t a 3.5, is this enough for me to still stand out for application time?

It sounds like you have a lot going for you, and would stand out at any school. The best bet, however, is to contact individual schools to which you are applying, and check with them. Also, you can try applying to PT schools with military connections, such as Baylor University.

A friend of mine sent over info below regarding my hip issues! If
you are facing the same problem, check out Jasmine’s suggestions below!
Really really awesome she took the time to write this up for everyone!

“Hi, I’m Jasmine and I recently became a Doctor of Physical Therapy so
when I saw that Paige was having hip issues I knew I had to give her
some advice! Paige’s symptoms are common in most active people who sit a
lot at work – sitting for most of the day tends to shorten your hip
flexors, while also weakening your hip abductors and hip extensors. This
combination can lead to problems and pain with running, but luckily
there are a few easy exercises that can help! …
