Hi Bryce,

I am glad to see you are embarking on a career in Physical Therapy!!! I see you are in Ohio. If you were thinking of staying in-state for school, Ohio State, Findlay and Dayton have great PT programs. I am from the northeast and Springfield College, Syracuse University and Ithaca College have great programs.

I hope this helps and best of luck with your career and future endeavors!!!

Hi Bryce:

Here's the link to the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) where you could click on a state to see colleges. You've received some great information from CV Profs and my tips are outlined below. Best of luck to you on your journey!

In addition to all the answers above, if you are in high school, your school guidance councilor can help you guide through you as well. My daughter received excellent guidance at school to figure out the schools. The high school uses a tool called Naviance (sp?) and it has a variety of filtering capability - you major (PT), region or state, public, private etc and provide you details on how much GPA/SAT scores you need on an average to get in etc. My daughter was able to use the tool at home and I was able to sit with her and use it. It requires a login ID and all high schools (I am told) provide that for free to high school students.

If you are targeting a specific area/state, just locate the universities in that area on the internet and search the majors they offer within that school's web site.

Hope this additional tip helps.
Best of Luck!

If you go to the American Physical Therapy Association website (APTA), there is a list by state of all colleges that offer PT programs. By going to their websites, you can find out more about the individual program. If you are accepted by a state school in your state of residence, typically the tuition is significantly lower than a private school. Good luck!

You can browse accredited PT programs by state at the APTA website. From there most colleges will happily brag about their success on their websites.
