Well, I'm not sure about those PT programs you listed but my stats were somewhat similar and I got into at least one program. So I'm sure there will be at least one program that will take you.

You may want to call or check the websites of the DPT programs for which you want to apply. They may have minimum GRE scores and may list the "average " GPA of admitted students and the schools website may give you a more accurate idea. Additionally I think Texas schools have some of the lowest costs for DPT programs and in general are fairly competitive It's great to get encouragement on the forum but you cant rely on that alone

My advice is get more observation to balance out the GPA. It's higher than the minimum GPA for schools inTexas but Texas is competitive! Also if your grade trend is upward (meaning your lower grades were earlier on in your undergrad) i would say you have a good chance! Your best bet is probably Texas Tech because they have 3 campuses and therefore can accept more people. They also don't ask for GRE scores! Good luck

You will never get in. Haha, just kidding but I second retaking the GRE.

When I retook it I went from 1040 to 1270. Your mileage may vary :)

I absolutely suggest retaking the GRE. I don't know about the schools you applied to but some weed people out by numbers alone. Keep up the good work! I took the new format and did really well. You look to be in good shape though.
