Why did you choose Texas Tech? After I was introduced to the Texas Tech PFP program by my undergraduate mentor, I never looked back. The program feels like a family and I have found lifelong friends and developed long-lasting professional and academic relationships. The TTU PFP program is the best in the country with its graduates, at all levels, going on to accomplish great feats in the profession. In particular, I believe obtaining an M.S. or Ph.D. degree and experience from this program allows one to pursuit their dreams with limitless potential.
