There are many different branches of PT jobs and i would like to go into orthopedics, is that the best route to go?

I just want to know that I will be successful in my job, and I really like the anatomy of the bones and muscles, so I think orthopedics is the right path for me to go. #science #graduate-school #physical-therapy...

How likely is it for someone to get into a prestigious grad school out of an average undergrad program?

I know people say "if you work hard and keep up your GPA, you'll be just fine," but I would really appreciate a more thorough answer. Are grad school admissions the same crazy zoo that undergrad colleges are? #graduate-school #college...
