Hello Jasmine! I am so happy I found your blog.

Congrats on getting an interview so early on in the application cycle! This link sums up my interview advice, including group interviews.

Hey Jasmine! Thanks for creating such a helpful and wonderful site! I am also interested in becoming a physical therapist.
