I love my school and really can't complain much about it. I truly think USciences is different in that we are so focused on academics but there's always room left for fun. I love how easy it is to get involved and how students can and do make a difference.
This is one of the few schools in PA that offere the DTP of Physical Therapy; it allows me to attend a great school, in a great city, near family and friends, while working towards my DTP in Physical Therapy. This was my first choice and I will be starting my studies there in Fall 2012.
