    Is anyone applying to Baylor's new hybrid DPT for the January 2019 start date? Curious how quickly the admissions decisions are made. Good luck to everyone!

    I applied to the class that started last month. The day after I applied I got an interview and I was accepted about 2 weeks later, so the overall process was really quick!

    Did you take the spot at Baylor ? I am quite interested in this program but still have some confusion. Like basically you have online lectures and on campus hands-on, does that mean you have to go to school everyday for hands on practices, or just stay home and study on your own pace?

    I did not accept the seat, I will be attending a different university. I highly recommend watching one of Baylor’s webinars, they are extremely helpful and can answer any questions you may have. But essentially, you do all your classes online but it is not on your own pace. You “attend” class online everyday with everyone else and a professor. You have outside lectures to watch that aren’t live, but have to be to watched before a certain date that way you know what’s going on during the actual lecture.
    The way the curriculum is set up is that you have 7 weeks of online lectures, then 1-2 weeks of in person labs in Dallas. Then repeat that cycle till you start your clinical. I have a friend in the program and she says it’s extremely intense, but that’s to be expected when you try to take 3 years of classes in 2 years.
    Here’s the link to the next webinar sign up, it was really helpful when I was considering applying to Baylor! Events / Webinars | Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) | Baylor University

    Hi dogmom24, I'm also applying to the hybrid program at Baylor. I already applied but I got an email saying that I wouldn't be considered for admissions until around May or June. I'm currently finishing up bio and my last physics and then I notified admissions that I plan on completing abnormal psych during summer/ fall at a local community college. I'm surprised PTAg17 got an interview so fast, you must have incredible stats. speaking of stats, would anyone be willing to share stats? Mine are pretty low and I have to constantly stop myself from having a nervous breakdown.!:scared:. My prereq GPA is currently sitting at a 3.0(not including the 3 classes I have yet to take) my gre: verbal 153, quant 143, and writing 3.5. i have 79 hours logged at a single clinic( currently trying to get more hours). I'm hoping I can help my gpa's out a little more with these last three classes. I'm basically out here trying to get extremely lucky!!!:luck:

    I absolutely don't mind sharing my stats! By no means do I have great stats, but I believe that I was a well-rounded applicant. According to PTCAS my cGPA was 3.26, Pre-Req for Baylor was around a 3.8-3.9 (I don't remember the exact number), and GRE was quantitative:153 verbal:147 and writing:4.5. I had over 850 volunteer/working hours in a mix of outpatient ortho, hospital, aquatic, and home health. I do know that Baylor is rolling admissions, so applying early is in your best interest. I wish you all the luck! If you have any more questions please feel free to ask!

    Do you mind if I ask you your stats? I’m thinking of applying. You can message me privately if you want. Thank you.

    The interview was completely online, and you’re completely by yourself. Even the interviewer has prerecorded the questions so no one is watching you. Which I kind of liked, it really took away some of the stress of interviews. You get asked a series of questions (6 I believe?). So when they ask you a question, you have 20 seconds to think of your response. Then it automatically starts recording you. Once you start your answer, you have around 3 or so minutes to finish before it starts recording. But from my experience that was plenty of time to answer the questions. After you’re finished recording your answer, you upload the video then continue on to the next questions. My internet was really slow where I lived so it took me about an hour and a half, but if you have good upload speed it should take about 45 minutes to finish. It was really laid back and the questions weren’t that hard. It’s just a different interview environment that takes a little bit to get used to. What I recommend is to practice interviewing by FaceTime or Skype with a friend or family member that way you can get as close to a simulation as you can!

    Not yet jt128, I know I have been put off because they sent me an email a while back saying that they were waiting for a bigger pool size to begin reviewing, but I think they are waiting on this last semesters grades to come out before they make a decision on me. I am really stressed out because two of my professors are taking forever to update my grades!! I am sure I did pretty well in both of those classes and I expect nothing below a B, but I cant update my grades on PTCAS until I have ALL my grades for the semester. it really sucks because PTCAS shuts down on June 1st, but the deadline for my professors is May 31st! how about you??

    I did my interview May 25, and haven't heard anything yet. I am going to send a follow up email to the director later today though, because I forgot to do one sooner hehe.

    Goodluck though!!

    Hello everyone,

    I got accepted into the Baylor program for the Jan 2019 start date. Has anyone else been accepted for this class? I am looking to move to the Dallas area and I am looking for housing recommendations or to connect with students that will be in my class.

    To help answer some questions that people have. It took me about three weeks to get back an acceptance letter but if you are waiting for grades I am sure that it will take a bit longer.

    My stats are below:
    GRE
    158 Verbal
    149 Quantitative
    4.0 Analytical

    GPA
    3.5 Cumulative
    3.7 Prereq

    Observation hours
    300 at three different clinics but I am working at a PT clinic full time so I am accumulating a lot more.

    Best of luck everyone!

    I'm not sure. You could email the director and ask if you haven't already! They allowed two for me.

    Hey for those who got accepted did you get a call from the admissions director saying your application was being sent to the Dean for review before you got your official acceptance and how long after did you get your acceptance?
