My Daughter at Slippery Rock

Our second visit was to Slippery Rock in PA. It's a six hour drive so not too far away from home. It was so different from UB. It had some lovely old buildings as well as a very modern gym and dorms. We saw students in the classrooms and at the gym but very few just walking around. It was a much smaller campus located in a quiet little town. There were just three people there for a tour so we were able to ask specific questions. My daughter left thinking maybe she should change her major. I don't think they meant to intimidate her but they did. They only accepted 50 students into their doctorate program for physical therapy this year and you have to have a grade point of 3.8. She's already stressing that she won't be able to do that. I tried to tell her to just take it one step at a time and not to give up on her dream without even trying. Tomorrow she'll be busy emailing both colleges with more questions. The next year will be an interesting one as she moves through this selection process!
