5-Points Friday is a new series I’m doing to wrap up a week’s worth of lessons learned, healthy snacks, and little bursts of what I’m up to. It’s also a progress report of how I’m becoming a top contender for PT school. Enjoy!

Not going to lie, this stung. A lot. But I want to make sure I share all parts of my journey with you guys, so here’s a setback I experienced.
I’m still in the running for several schools, so I’m not getting discouraged, and I’m just using setbacks for FUEL to push myself even more ;))
Just notified I don't meet the cGPA requirement for my 2 fav PT programs. Not going to let myself get discouraged. #justgettingstarted

advice I’m listening to —
Jordan: You did a great job on your first video😊 My only suggestion is to not be afraid to jot down a list of things you want to cover to help you flow through the video. I also just ordered the book you recommended!👍🏼 Thanks Jess
Excellent advice, right? Like, very basic, but also exactly what I needed to hear! It was great to have him tell me to make a topics list because it’s something I hadn’t even thought about.
opportunity I’m spotlighting —

what I’m reading —
My sister sent this GRE study guide to me and it has reignited my motivation to crush the GRE! (I feel pressure to do well on this test because my GPA is going to be such a weak part of my application & I need to balance that out).
What I’ve learned about test taking strategy from this book:
- Answer every question – even with a guess! (no points are taken off for wrong answers). ((good to know, good to know))
- Work quickly & answer questions I know first! Don’t dwell on questions. Skip the ones I don’t know & revisit if there’s time at the end.
quote I’m reflecting on —
Have you ever been published on a website? How was your experience?
I play all day on Snap & Twitter!
Come say hi :))
