Hints for Applying to Grad School

  • Preparation is key!

    Here are a few helpful suggestions for being successful in your application and acceptance into a doctor of physical therapy program:

    • Study hard
    • Perform very well in your prerequisite courses
    • Apply early
    • Acquire a broad exposure to physical therapy and the settings where physical therapists work
    • If you aren’t certain that physical therapy is the career for you, investigate other options
    • Review the specific admission criteria for any program you are interested in.  Familiarize yourself with standardized tests (i.e. GRE), volunteer/observation hours, and specific academic prerequisites that are required.
