Earlier this week, I was taken off the waitlist at a PA program, and struggled with the decision of whether or not to attend. After deep considering (and SO much help from Instagram homies), I have officially decided to accept. And I couldn’t be more thrilled. Here are some of the arguments for both sides, which I hope will help guide others’ decision, as it so dramatically helped mine.
It is no secret that I am a Parks and Rec afficianado. It has been my favorite tv show for awhile, most notably because I am so inspired by Leslie Knope. She is passionate, powerful, driven, and loves her galpals so hard.
