Hello loves~ Welcome back to Peachy Academy! In today’s post, I will be giving you an overview of my application experience. As some of you know, I am currently in graduate school to obtain my Doctorate of Physical Therapy. If you think it is a simple and straight forward process — let me state that this was possibly the most challenging experience to date. From the time of my application season(s), it was said that roughly 8% of applicants get accepted into physical therapy school. This is mainly due to the fact that there are an overwhelming amount of applicants and each program only accepts an average of 45 students per year.

As scary as that sounds, I am not trying to discourage potential applicants — I only want to share my experiences so that others don’t feel alone and to create a space for discussion and solidarity.

Hello loves and welcome back to Peachy Academy! In today’s post, I will be discussing the debate of whether private school or public school is better. Throughout the years, I have had many people (including parents) ask me which setting I preferred, and which was better of the two. So, I figured that I would touch base on this topic for those who were curious.

This episode of Peachy Academy will also feature a friend of mine who experienced a similar educational background. The only difference is that she attended private school for a longer period.

Hello loves and welcome back to Peachy Academy!

To start off this series, I thought it was fitting that I share my academic background with you. This series would not be comprehensive without disclosing this information. I believe that my perspective, advice, and potential mentorship can be better understood once you take a peek into my educational path.

As I mentioned in the introduction post, school has been a massive part of my life. However, I would not consider my academic journey as typical or average. For example, I have been privileged enough to attend private school for six years. Although I am aware that I had a lot leverage in my education, I want you to take everything with a grain of salt.

Remember that education, life, and success is not always linear.

Hello loves and welcome to a new series!

As the title implies, this is a school and study series. If you read my update post on 04-24-21, then you know that I was accepted into physical therapy school and will begin later this fall. Education has always been a big part of my upbringing, and I have tried to share my experiences via YouTube. However, it was far from adequate (it was actually quite terrible…).

So, in today’s post, I will be introducing Peachy Academy!

I understand that school and academics vary on one’s priority list. Nevertheless, I hope that we can become study pals. Whether you are learning for fun, part-time, full-time, or are just curious, I invite you to join me!
