Stage 1- Researching the field.. Is this the field that I want to work in. Stage 2- Pre-Reqs/ Volunteer / Observations /Work in PT Stage 3- Application Process / Interviews Stage 4- Getting Accepted Or Waiting List Stage 5- Physical Therapy School Stage 6- Working as a Physical Therapist Stage 7- Stay in the field or go do something different (Medical/PA/ETC) Currently I am in Stage 4. I got accepted and currently exploring more options. Reading some posts, I cant figure out the stage that the people fall in. Some make it obvious by what they experianced in school and working as a therapist. I should also thank dubpt and docwagner for answering some of my questions regarding life as a physical therapist. So please respond to what stage you are currently in and I can answer any questions regarding stages 1-4. Also I am interested in knowing more of stages 5-7.
