Surviving My First Month of DPT School!

Hello, my name is Briana Lievanos, and I am currently enrolled in Tufts University DPT program. Tufts DPT program is an accelerated hybrid program and I have been accepted into the first cohort of this program. I will start by saying that this first month of DPT school flew by, probably because of the high load of work from being an accelerated program. While this program is challenging with time management and balancing course work, I do not think I could have picked a better program for myself. I have felt truly blessed being part of Tufts DPT first cohort with the amazing and supportive faculty and my wonderful and helpful peers.

After researching all the different programs, I feel like I am a perfect fit for my program at Tufts. I remember starting my journey in preptgrind in June of 2020 and I am so happy to have gotten guidance this time around for my PT application. I remember one of the first things Joses and Casey mentioned, was to research the DPT schools that you are interested in attending. I remember them saying this because they said you want to pick a school that is right for you and that made complete sense to me. I did not want to apply to a school and regret my decision because I was not a good fit for that program. So, I went ahead and started looking up schools , and attending student webinars to find out more about each school’s program. I  highly encourage everyone to attend these open webinars for each school that you are interested in attending because you get to connect with the school and see if you will be a good fit for their program.  Tufts University became my number one choice after I attend  their webinar. I was ecstatic when I received the phone call about my acceptance into the Tufts DPT program.

This first month has bought so  many different emotions, from being overjoyed at orientation to feeling overwhelmed and  anxious  with all the material I need to learn for my first Anatomy Exam. But even with all the stress,  I still believe Tufts is the program for me. The time I took researching the program at this university was time well spent.
