    University: University of Miami

    Volunteer/Observation Hours:
    1. 250 hours shadowing outpatient ortho
    2. 5 hours in In-patient Neuro
    3. 5 hours in In-patient Cardiac

    Applying to:

    I feel as if my GPA is average while my GRE, Extra Curriculars and Observation Hours are a bit above average. I’ve run into the problem that it is impossible to find out how many people apply specifically to each PT program, so there is no figure out there for acceptance rates! (Correct me if I am wrong. PTCAS only shows the % of In-state/out of state of ACCEPTED applicants, and the class size. Never says how many apply to the program from in-state/out of state). This makes it very hard to determine which programs are “safety” schools vs. “reach” schools for me. I want to know what my chances are to get into these listed schools with my pedigree. If anyone could suggest any schools I definitely would get into, I would appreciate it.

    Most schools won't have statistics posted because they need the applications to further their income ( I work in an admissions office and know the politics of it). However, if you call the schools, sometimes they will give you rough estimates of their numbers and you can extrapolate a percentage based on their class size

    Hello, is anybody here having issues with PTCAS status?? I am a re-applicant and did a re-applicant application. My observation hours from last cycle are shown in my new aplication but the status says not verified. I contacted PTCAS and they told me I need to resend the request to all therapist even though it is their problem. So I resend the request and now it shows my hours twice in the application and PTCAS says they cant delete the old ones. Is anybody having similar issues????

    Fortunately for me, even as screwed up PTCAS was for me on other issues, my observation hours all came over from last cycle, and showed as Verified on my new apps.

    out of curiosity, is it true that you can not apply to programs if you have for say a 149 and the “minimum considered” is a 150? really confused about how ptcas works.

    I believe PTCAS will still allow you to apply since it’s not up to them to determine if you’ve met the admissions criteria for programs you’re interested in. But programs with a minimum GRE score will likely throw out your application without reviewing it any further once they see you have not met one of their admissions requirements.

    I would just suggest getting that verbal GRE up (if it’s below the minimum/average. If not, I wouldn’t take it again)

    They actually don’t have a minimum on their PTCAS page so I’m not really sure what to do next.

    Try estimating how your scores would hold up against the average accepted, but then again other factors such as gpa and volunteering hours also play a key role. Most schools want to see at least 150 on both. I’m on the same boat as you since I got a 156q. 149v.

    Accepted:


    Worried a bit about my GPA - not sure if schools will take major into account. My extracurrics could also be better and not sure what my PT's LOR will look like bc she was the kind of person you're never really sure likes you or not...lolol rip.

    Also - I recently got hired as a rehab aide at a chiropractic clinic too. Should I put this on my application? I know it wouldn't count as observation hours of course, but I've heard some iffy things about how PTs view chiropractors so not sure if I should include it in my application at all.

    Thank you!! I’m very excited :) My first choice would probably be the University of Minnesota because it is cheaper than St. Catherine, but I like the curriculum at St. Catherine’s better.

    I was below the minimum for nearly all my schools the last cycle and they all specifically told me that my GRE wasn’t strong enough . It was true for me but I’m not sure it is true for everyone. You are still capable of applying but later the schools told me that that’s why they can’t accept me. Good luck!

    I think it’s at the building close to Center City, near City Hall. Not the one in West Philly by Penn

    I’m pretty confident about that, but not certain, so I’d wait until they send us more info

    What did you different for this cycle if you don’t mind me asking? Like are those the same stats for your apps last year?

    How do you like your university after one year of studying? I have read not so pleasant comments.

    Hi,
    Did you get to any universities or gave up any hope?

    I don't mind at all! Last year I was actually placed on the alternate list for all three schools I listed above, so I knew I wasn't too far off from where I needed to be. I would just say I was a more well rounded applicant this year. In the past year I got a lot of experience working full time as a rehab tech in an inpatient hospital setting, retook the worst grade on my transcript, and coached a wrestling team to gain leadership experience. I think it also helped that I wasn't as nervous for the interview this year. Having more experiences to talk about really made me a lot more confident going into the interview.

    Congrats! For me I emailed Erlinda to see who was going to interview me. This allowed me to research my interviewer and have questions regarding his research at school. Check out my prior posts, I think I’ve posted a lot of tips about the school.

    Try to think how you could weave customer service into being a PT. Dm me if you have any other specific questions. Good luck!

    That’s awesome! This is me 2nd time applying. I made the waitlist for TWU but didn’t get off of it. I retook my GRE 1st attempt: 146V 150Q 4.0 A
    2nd attempt: 147 V 153 Q 3.5 A. I don’t know if I should send both scores to schools for the analytical score or what. I also worked as a tech for a year and was apart of a community outreach.
