I think the best thing is to just look at each schools minimum pre-req or cGPA requirements on PTCAS, that would mean avoiding more competitive PT states like California and Texas. There are also Accredited PT schools which do not participate in the PTCAS application process but are still certified schools. The list of those schools can be found on the PTCAS website and they usually have lower GPA requirements.
