    So, you turned down VCU and Shenandoah? So lucky! Curious why you didn't go with either of those schools? Congrats to your success and how long do you have until you need to make a decision?

    I just didn't feel the vibe there. They were great schools but I could see myself at GW/Drexel! Even though they are the cheaper options, I don't want to go there and feel like I don't fit.

    Thank you!

    I'm going to GW!! I interviewed at Drexel and I am choosing to go to GW because I felt that the professors were overall much nicer and more approachable. The curriculum was also very attractive to me. I would consider what you want in a curriculum, the area you want to be in, and how much you are willing to pay. DC is more expensive to live in, but you should go with your gut instinct and what you felt when you visited both schools!

    Hi! I was wondering when you applied to ODU and how they let you know you were accepted (phone call, email, etc)? I applied there in October and am really hoping to hear from them soon!

    The mercy interview is in person and it is a group interview, two faculty and three interviewees. There's usually 4 or 5 questions then a teamwork based question. They randomize the order for answering questions so you won't have to worry about not knowing what to say or always being first or last. I don't remember all of them but they were pretty standard interview questions. Why do you think you'd be successful at mercy? What are some struggles in the field of pt now? Why pt instead of another health care field? I don't remember the other two. My teamwork question was think of three strategies that will help you succeed in a dpt program. During the teamwork question the three of you interviewees will discuss the question and try to find good answers. During this portion it's important that you show good leadership skills, as well as the ability to follow. You want to let people finish talking but you also want to show you have input and what you say matters. That's all I really got, be yourself, be confident you got an interview, and you're gonna do great.

    Finally heard back from all my schools, so finally posting one of these!

    Undergrad: Sonoma State University
    Degree: BS in Kinesiology & minor in Biology
    Cgpa: 3.98
    Prereq gpa:4.0
    Gre: Verbal 156/73% Quant 155/59% Writing 4.0/60%

    Volunteer hrs = about 700hrs total

    Outpatient was 400 hrs in 2 peds settings(private therapy summer camp and a school based peds clinic), and 80 hrs in a nuero clinic connected to a hospital
    Inpatient was 125hrs in an ER hospital and 84hrs in a SNF

    Extracurriculars:
    Was apart of the Kinesiology club and biology club during undergrad, assisted in my schools physio lab on 2 research projects and went abroad during my year off and volunteered in a refugee soup kitchen for a month and a half.

    Applied: University of Southern California(USC), UCSF/SFSU, Samuel Merritt, Regis University, University of Puget Sound, CSU Fresno, University of Delaware, Arcadia University, Drexel University, Boston University, Thomas Jefferson University, and UNE

    Interviews: Drexel, Thomas Jefferson, U Delaware, UNE (declined), Fresno State (declined), Regis University (declined), and USCF/SFSU

    Acceptances: Drexel University (with Dean’s Scholarship), Thomas Jefferson (with scholarship), U Delaware, USC, Arcadia University (with merit scholarship), Samuel Merritt, Boston University (with Sargent Scholarship), UCSF/SFSU, and University of Puget Sound

    Rejections: NA
    Waitlist:NA

    Never in a million years did I think I’d be accepted to every program I applied to/interviewed for! I’m honestly shocked.

    ATTENDING: Drexel University (with the scholarship it makes Drexel my cheapest choice, and curriculum/faculty wise it was my favorite because there are a lot of peds opportunities, so it worked out well) My hardest decisions were deciding between Drexel, Delaware and UCSF, but I’m happy with my choice and can’t wait to be a Drexel Dragon! :soexcited:
