    Congrats! I was accepted as well but I am waiting to see how my interview with MGH on the 25th goes, then I'll have to further compare the programs and quickly decide! I also applied to Simmons College but.... we'll see.

    The whole program is 77 thousand.

    Thank you! Congratulations to you as well. I am only interested in one other program but I won't hear for a while. I think I will end up at FIU. Its a great program and I am excited about it. :)

    Florida is where I wanna be so I just said lets go for it! The cost will suck later but I just can't see myself going to school in the middle of nowhere for 3 years to save money. No way.

    If anyone who is starting wants to go ahead and make the FaceBook page, go for it! I am a little lost as to how to make a page right now.

    Really? You should email the department receptionist to find out why. I didn't hear anything from them till they sent the interview email, so that may be why. My stats were: GPA: 3.7 pGPA: 3.4 GRE: 303 (150 V 153 Q) 4.5 AW

    I hope you hear something soon!

    That's awesome! No, I haven't made it yet. It prompts you to add friends to it but I don't have anyone who has been accepted as a friend yet!

    Austin,
    I am in the same boat..I sent my application a couple days before the due date and still haven't heard anything back..I was looking through their website and it says there is another interview process on March 1st? Not sure if that really is the case but I am staying hopeful! Guess that's all we can do in such a competitive field!

    I applied in early November and have also not heard anything. I also left a voicemail with admissions inquiring for a status but never received a returned call. I wonder how many spots are open this late in the game. Any ideas?

    I had my interview this morning along with about 35 other applicants. It was 15 min with Dr. Brunt. 15 min with a current student & another 15 min with a panel followed by a tour. Out of all 3, Dr. Brunt's interview felt the most pressured. He just seemed a little overwhelmed by all the interviewing.

    Congrats on the interview! Really? Dr.Brunt was so relaxed during my interview. But maybe because you had a large group interviewing. Are you looking into going anywhere else?

    I heard stories of last years class hearing kind of late. I would call till you can talk to someone who can give you an estimate.

    You're probably right. I will give it another try tomorrow. I also don't want to be that obnoxious student, ya know. Keep you all posted if I'm provided with any insight.

    finally heard back from FIU after messaging them over a week ago. They lady told me that I won't be hearing anything from them until the second week of march. She also told me: PS we still haven't received your Analytical score. I'm a little upset by this because I checked online and I totally sent it to them when I first took it last september. Kind of over FIU. They are a mess.

    Isn't the last interview date March 1st? I haven't heard anything from them neither. I wonder if anyone has gotten an interview invite or if they already filled their DPT class for the Fall...

    I'm not surprised they took a bit to get back to you because last week was quite a few interviews so I bet they were busy. Yeah I definitely would be frustrated too. I think if you sent your GRE scores before the AW writing, it doesn't send that portion.

    I was one of the ones who still hadn't heard a single thing from FIU after having sent my application to them back in September. Finally heard back from them today via email for an interview on March 1st that I declined as I have already been accepted to my top choice, hopefully this opens up an interview spot for someone else! My guess is they have a few spots left that they are still trying to fill.

    Best of luck to everyone and congrats to those who have been accepted!

    I wasn't sold on FIU till I got there. That's why, if possible, I think everyone should try and go to all the interviews they can so they can get a glimpse of what the program is like in person. The program works closely with the nurse practitioner, nurse anesthesiologist, and the med students which I appreciated because We will be working closely with other health professionals in the future and I think it's important to get a small glimpse of their perspective as students and what they go through. Dr.Brunt is changing the program and I think he's really improving it. They have added a lot of new technology for research later on in the program. They have a lot of clinical rotation sites and internship opportunities, which is where I feel like you do most is your learning. Also the program isn't overwhelming to begin with like some others. The only negative thing I've heard is that because they combined med school and PT school anatomy, they had to readjust the PTs schedule, which threw some students off. But they only do that in one semester. I think you should go so you can make your own opinion. Either way, you are going to be a PT in 3 years! :soexcited:
