    What are my chances of being accepted for the physiotherapy program?

    Advertisements



    I'm an American college student who really wants to do the physiotherapy program here. Unfortunately my GPA is terrible (2.2. Yes, I know this is bad, I'm not going to explain my whole story as to why just please don't lecture me on it). I'm absolutely terrified that my GPA will hold me back from this dream. However I have been doing better in recent semesters and consistently have been doing well in all my science classes (Biology, anatomy, physiology, and chemistry). I am also a certified EMT-B. I am a very hard worker and know I would do well and thrive here, just am hoping I can get a chance to prove that even if I could just make it far enough to get an interview.

    Is it possible that I might get accepted despite my bad GPA?

    I think your GPA won't matter. Recruitment period is officially over. Since they are still making interviews for physiotherapy means that they still have more spots to fill and decided to extend it. Depending on how many people will be at your interview I would say your chances are pretty good. There have been students in the past that did not have any of those subjects, and I'm talking on high school diplomas and still got accepted because of few people applying.

    Show them you have a basic understanding in the sciences and I think it will go just fine.

    The physio program in it's current state won't be enough for licensing in America. Most states require a Doctor of Physiotherapy degree. The program at PUMS is only Bachelors so you will probably have to go back to university once you graduate.

    The physio program at PUMS is more geared towards EU students.

    Not sure what that has to do with what I asked. I have my own plan as to what I'd do after I graduate, not your concern as that has nothing to do with what I asked here.

    Your acceptance into the physio program is based on your overall performance on the interview. So you have a chance of getting accepted into the physio program if you do well on the interview despite your low gpa

    When it comes to applying to offshore schools majority of applicants care about getting accepted. Very few do the math when it comes to licensing in there home countries. So when I saw that you are American, and wanted to go into the physio program I just wanted to let you know that the physio degree wouldn't be valid in North America without an extra university degree. The only countries where is degree would be valid would be in Europe, and you would have to take the local language/licensing exams in order to get a job. If your future plans are in EU then go for the program, but if you wish to practice in the US some day you are better off getting into an American physio program.
