My GPA was right around a 3.5 so I did get in to many other schools but looking in to tuition NIU was in state and the cheapest school with the most students. It also has a great Kinesiology program which I learned so much from. You can make a great physical therapy graduate program here so if you are like me then i suggest applying.

I did very well in my community college and graduated with high honors with my associate degree. I had been actively involved with my community college and enjoyed my time there.
