    For those applying to Spring 2019: Are you guys also applying to a few other schools when the PTCAS cycle opens up next month?

    Can I ask what his GRE and GPA are? I'm really nervous and just trying to see how I compare to everyone else...

    So what I'm doing is having my stuff sent over to PTCAS. It's cheap. There is one school that I am applying for because their application closes in August. I am going to have everything ready to go, but I'm only going to submit the rest of my applications if I don't get in to USA. To me, it does not make much sense to apply if I know that I will go to USA if I get in.

    Sure, his GRE was 292, writing a 4, I think Saint Augustine recommends 294. His Overall GPA was 3.4 and Prereq GPA was around a 3.6 I believe. But hes also been a physical therapy tech for a fews years in outpatient and skilled nursing so he has a lot of hours. As well as him being a personal trainer on the side.

    Haha sounds like me. I'm an aide. I've got over 2000 hours at an outpatient clinic and I'm a personal trainer with two additional certifications.

    I got accepted into the Summer of 2018. I turned down the offer for a better opportunity, but when going through the application cycle, these forums helped me A LOT! I thought I'd give back by sharing my personal statement for others to have an example. Best of Luck!

    Here is some encouragement too for those with low cGPAs...

    My stats:
    GRE:147V/159Q/5AW
    pGPA: 3.85
    Last 45: 3.80
    cGPA: 2.97

    Thanks for sharing your experience! Do you have any advice as far as interviewing?
    I have a 3.7 pGPA and a 3.6 cGPA
    My test scores are 148 Q, 152 V, and 5.5 W
    I have over 2,000 hours in 4 different settings, plus I am a personal trainer with a few other certifications. I'm very nervous, and anxious to hear back. Any advice would be much appreciated :)

    So Ive been speaking back and forth to one of the enrollment advisors and in regard to what they look for, here is some info.(copy and pasted the transcript)


    Admissions does look at applications holistically. They will be looking at your application as a whole considering everything that you bring forward. We still encourage students to apply if they have a lower cumulative GPA because there are other areas of your application that admissions will review. If you cumulative GPA is below a 3.0, we do suggest that your prerequisite GPA does meet or exceed the 3.0 GPA. This is a GPA that you can control because we do take the higher grade if you retake a course. Another area admissions looks at is your GRE score. The recommended score is at least a 294 and a 3.5 in the writing.
