Dear Mr. Easwaran,
As a parent myself, I understand your anxiety and eagerness to find the right US university for your daughter. She seems like an exceptionally bright and dedicated student. Since she has another 2 plus years to complete her Bachelor's,it is too early to decide on a university. There are many excellent universities for Physical Therapy and the competition is often stiff. Strong academic background and good grades (your daughter has both) are essential. The right school will also depend on her career interests – what does she want to do after she earns her degree? Please stay in touch and when she is about one year from graduation, we can offer more specific advice and guidance. Best wishes! You are a great dad!
