    Hello everyone.
    I was just wondering if anyone heard anything positive or negative about the DPT program at MCPHS in Worcester?
    It seems that everyone talks about the pharmacy program and I can't find much about the physical therapy program.
    Are there any students in the program that could tell me what they think about the program?
    How are the professors? Do they set you up for success?

    It’s terrible. There is one professor who cares about our success, the rest lead by fear and intimidation. The director is one of the worst human beings I’ve ever dealt with in my life. The curriculum is dated, and I wouldn’t recommend it. If you get in anywhere else, go there.

    I would see if you could get refunds, definitely go to the other interview. Basically, you aren’t set up for success because you aren’t guaranteed a spot every term. They head hunt for reasons to kick you out. The curriculum is outdated, and all but 2 of the professors haven’t practiced in decades. I could literally go on all day.

    I just had my interview there and it was an awesome experience. So I'm pretty shocked to hear that someone has such negative things to say about it.

    I was accepted to the program early on in the cycle and I really enjoyed the interview and the program. The interview was one on one with a faculty member. I actually had the director of the program and she seemed nice and engaged. The questions are all very straight forward, they have a list that is standard for all students for that day. Don't stress out too much! There is a writing section where you get to pick a prompt from a list of like 6-7, so just find one you can answer well.
    The city itself isn't the greatest, imo, but the campus seemed to be all brand new facilities.
    Good luck! Im sure you'll do great.

    I was also accepted to the program early on in the cycle. I had an interview with the clinical director and she was very nice and answered every single one of my questions.
    There is a probono clinic on campus called BMW where you get to practice your skills before going out in the real world.
    When we had the program director tell us about the program, she seemed to dodge all the questions that were asked (financial aid, scholarships, clinical placements, etc).
    When the students were giving us a tour, they didn't seem too enthusiastic about the program. It kind of felt like a sales pitch and I didn't get a sense of honesty from the students.
    I ended up rescinding my seat in the program, but this was just my experience with the interview.
    Your interview could be completely different and I wish you the best of luck.

    Ya, I thought it was all rainbow and butterflies until midway through first term when I realized what a garbage program it is for the price. There’s not a single person I know in the program that actually thinks it’s a good program
