    Do y'all think that they'll let people know if they're waitlisted with the next wave of acceptances (which is hopefully soon)? I'm anxious to get some idea of where I stand

    How long do you have to decide? I'd recommend visiting both schools and spending a day with current students in each program. Ultimately it comes down to where you think you will be happier for 3 years.

    Our canvas page still has 73 people in it so I'm assuming so!

    Thank you! I decided to attend USC in CA. I believe I'd be happier there.

    This is just speculation but I imagine at this point they have extended enough offers to fill the class but are waiting for responses and offering spots one by one as people confirm or deny their acceptances?

    I emailed Duke today asking for an update on my application and they said I was still in the running. They couldn't tell me how full the class was but said it was not 100% full yet

    I’m still waiting as well.. I sent them an email today inquiring about the status of my application and all they could tell me was that I’m still being considered and that final decisions will be made sometime this month. -_-

    It's so difficult waiting! I got an email saying my app was still under review on Jan 19 and nothing else since. I just wonder if that means I will be denied since they have sent out so many acceptances :'(

    I was rejected from all the 3 other schools I applied to, so I'm not feeling too confident. Any words of encouragement? Is there anybody here who didn't get into PT school on their first try?

    My first year I only had experience in outpatient, so I also got hours in skilled nursing and home health.

    Oh wow! Well that's definitely my goal this year, to get more experience in another setting. I currently only have observation hours in one. Hopefully this helps. Thanks for the encouragement!
