Hello... first off im not sure if this is the right area to put this in... but sorry in advance.
Anyway i was wondering if anyone had a full listing of the usnews graduate school rankings for the DPT (doctor of physical therapy) degree. If not that a link to the premium listing shown online. Thanks a bunch.

    You don't give any indication of what part of the country you are looking for info in or your own info/status - are you now an undergrad??? and what is your major if so - so this will be a general response - sorry.

    US News does not rank DPT programs - your best bet is to search the state references/professional organizations for these programs/info - many of which are very new - too new to rank by anyone at this point - or the individual programs themselves - it is a very competitive admissions process - that I can tell you.

    FYI - there have been recent changes in the requirements for PT's entering grad school - make sure to check the state sites and individual grad programs for this info also.

    Thank you to both of your for the help... the list is a good one btw. Just for a little more detail I am binghamton class of 07... i am full aware of the vast pre reqs... i have a 3.2 right now while majoring in biopsychology... internships will be lined up for the next three summers.... I am most interested in Columbia and NYU, and I am from westchester, ny. Currently in the pre-reqs I have an A in abnormal psyc, B in stats, B minus in the first half of biology, and an A in intro psyc.... i still have more than 75 percent of the reqs to do so this all may be very premature. As long as I have loads of observational hours, fine essays, and a 3.3 overall and in pre requs I should be competitive (sic) at those two school, no?
    One more quick question... what is the general distinction between the dpt degree and a sports medicine degree... just formal md school admission proceses (mcat)? Thank you!
