Answering a question that came up on a podcast that I recently had the privilege of being on.
I get it. I'm on the other side of things, having already earned that DPT and that OCS. As such, if I say that something ‘doesn't matter' it's coming from a place that perhaps I got to because I was able to use those letters when it did matter. It's hard to say.
But, as someone who has been through it, all I can do now is offer my two pennies on subject, and tell others what I wish someone had told me.
