Hey!
Just wondering if anyone is in the Regis DPT program and can provide some more insight. I am interested in applying to the program next cycle and was wondering if anyone had any advice and specifics about the program itself.
If anyone else is interested in the program, I'd love to compare stats!

Thanks!

Regis was the only school I didn't get an interview invite into, but I saw people with worse stats then mine get in. So if you go to sticky threads and see the main won't compringGPAs stats and all that you can see many people who received invites to Regis, you can also search Regis university in recent posts and see people who got in this past cycle!

Sorry to hear that! I'm mostly concerned with how they view out of state candidates? I've heard that CU and Regis aren't too friendly to out of state applicants, do you know anything about this?

CU is 80+% in-state students. However Regis accepts about 75% out of state students! I met many students who were offered wait list interviews or actual interviews.
I'm still unsure as to why I wasn't offered one since I had good statistics and some higher then a handful of students accepted to their program, but everything happens for a reason!! Love that school though!! Definitely worth the application!

That's good hear! Was worried applying wouldn't be worth it. But yeah, Regis is really high on the list, I would love to move to Denver and CU seems like a long shot!
Would you mind sending me your stats so I can see what to shoot for in terms of GPA/GRE ext...
Wonder if you could contact the school and see if you can find the reasoning, because that must be pretty frustrating!

Hi there!! I am applying to Regis for the next cycle. However, it is a bit of a long shot for me I feel like... I screwed up my gpa freshman year a bit and man am I kicking myself now... I am taking the GRE next week and have yet to get my pre-req GPA calculated. This is really all I have for stats now. Do you mind sharing yours as well?

cGPA: 3.43
last 60 hours: 3.55
observation hours: 100+ as PT aide, 20 nursing home, 120 inpatient in two different hospitals, 65 outpatient

I can't say I would recommend this program. It is expensive, conservative, and they haven't re-invested in their facilities. Also, about 10 to 20% of entering students fail out.

Many students in the program and PTs who have completed the program absolutely have raved about the program, so I wouldn't not apply because of that. I attend elsewhere but they offer scholarships, and their facilities work and have worked so well for students that they don't need to re-invest in them for the purpose of success. They had over 1,400 applicants last cycle so they also don't need to re-invest for appeal, the school is a very sought out private program. You have the pleasure of living in one of the most beautiful places in the USA and can get the student pass for snowboarding/skiing since that's a good portion of why people apply there. Students will fail out of every school if they are not determined enough, so just be ready to devote your life to studying. You're going to go into some debt along the way no matter what, I don't see any problem with adding a little more to the debt to live somewhere I love and be with people who share general interests with me and love the outdoors! I guess it just depends what you like!
I'm an alum. I'm glad you are having a good experience elsewhere, and I don't doubt Regis is a good program for many people. However, I do think it's important to state that you are much more likely to like your Regis DPT experience if you meet ALL of the following criteria: you are white, conservative, Christian, never been to grad school before, heterosexual, middle-class and under the age of 25. I don't get nostalgic for memories of 60 plus women changing clothes multiple times in a 3-stall bathroom solely for the purposes of a ridiculous dress code, nor 6 or more people clustered around a single cadaver. In my opinion, the facilities at Regis are woefully lacking for the amount of students they admit. This is a white, conservative, Christian campus. The culture is not supportive of minorities. Period.

Just to be clear: I wouldn't recommend Regis for all of those reasons. I think they accept too many students for the facilities they offer on campus. I think the tuition is expensive. I also think it is a conservative culture that is not supportive of minorities. I would not recommend Regis to most people seeking a well-equipped, affordable, diverse experience for DPT schooling.

Hey there! I am attending Regis this fall. Maybe I can help with some info on the application, interview process, and a couple of other things to think about.

First, each school reviews applications differently. Regis seems to place a lot of emphasis on the total student. So, stats are not the sole factor in getting an interview or accepted. It is good to have life experience, clinical experience and a true desire to help others.

I think I am the person DPT_19 is referring to about the 2.9 gpa and scholarship. While it would have been much easier and less stressful to know someone in the department, that wasn't the case. Making a gross assumption about my acceptance may be a revealing character trait. I would like to think that I had decent stats (other than my cgpa, which was explained on my application), excellent essays, and I aced the interview. Regis also places an emphasis on diversity throughout the application process. I think this is the reason I received a scholarship.

I have had nothing but good experiences so far. Hopefully that does not change. The faculty, staff, and current students have been warm, welcoming and helpful. Everyone has a unique experience, though. I am a firm believer in making a situation what you want it to be, so hopefully that leads to a positive experience. I am truly looking forward to starting school.

A couple of things to think about. Tuition is expensive at Regis because it is a private school. The Denver area is booming right now, so housing prices are kind of outrageous. Housing is also rather competitive. Colorado seems to be a popular place to move these days. Regis is a Jesuit Catholic school, so there is a reasonable expectation that it will lean conservative. Having a desire to help those in need is important as service learning is also emphasized.

I hope this helps! PM me if you have any questions that I may be able to answer! Good luck!

Has anyone applied and gotten in without a teacher rec letter?

I emailed to ask if I could sub the letter but they said no but could still apply.

Unfortunately, I have been out of school for a while and feel too weird asking the teacher I asked for a rec letter from, to write it after she probably doesn't even remember me :dead:

As a current student in this program, I can say that yes it is expensive and, at some points, can be conservative. This should be no surprise, it is a Jesuit school. There are multiple LGBT students in our program who would tell you they feel right at home. This is 2016. Regis has up to date facilities and in fact were some of the best I saw in the schools I interviewed with. Of the current classes (16,17), only two people have failed out. PT school is hard, almost every program reports losing people whether it be for academic or other reasons.

I'm sorry you don't have positive experiences with Regis, but please be respectful.

Can somebody share their stats here for Regis University?
I'm really hoping I get an interview invite.
