I have an interview in March and was curious to get others opinions on the program as well as the whole interview. Currently I have heard more negative feedback from others than good feedback which makes me feel unsettled.

I thought the interview process was smooth. The faculty were so friendly and welcoming. I chose LIU based on a number of factors. Commute, clinical affiliations, curriculum, etc. I also happen to work at a pt clinic where most of the therapists graduated from LIU, so it was a no brainer for me. Their approach to treatment and their out of the box thinking is what made me really want to attend LIU. Hope this helps.

Hi, I had an interview back in December. The faculty was very welcoming and I believe they have a good curriculum. This is what I remember from their presentation:
  1. practice exam after each term to help prepare for boards (huge plus! they stressed that they are one of the few schools that have a 100% passing rate on students FIRST attempt)
  2. have an aqua therapy setting for learning, but I believe only a one/handful of instruction days are actually in the pool setting
  3. professors have an open door policy and invite students to do research studies during the semester
  4. have campus jobs available
  5. students seem to have a tight knit environment/culture
  6. provide lockers on campus for students
  7. class times vary, sometimes students have 3-4 hour gaps between classes, but current students didn't seem to be bothered by this
  8. have many clinical sites to choose from (students provide their top choice and the faculty places you at a site based on availability and if it is a good fit for you, will not place you at a site that is over ~1.5 hours away I believe)
  9. gym seemed like a decent size, didn't look busy when I toured.
  10. have tunnels/hallways connecting building, helpful especially during colder seasons
  11. current students also seemed to enjoy the program, they said it was difficult, but manageable (one joked that they still have days where they binge on Netflix haha)

Questions that were asked: Why pt, why LIU, describe a time that you overcame an emotional situation and one where you shared different perspectives/conflict

Overall, I was impressed with the faculty, but the price is alarming, especially since I had to factor in moving expenses/room & board.

I was accepted into the program, but I declined my spot. This is all I remember, but if you have questions, I'll try to answer! hope this helps! Good luck in your decision making!

Hi all,
Accepted off of alternate list!! Have until Wednesday (<2 days) to pay my deposit though.. Still don't know what to do HAHA. Torn because of cost, but I will be having a meeting with a financial aid advisor to become familiar with my options! If anyone has any advice, feel free to share! :)
