Although this article by U.S. News doesn’t exactly mention physical therapy, it does say that the job market is great for “just about everybody else with an advanced degree—or even an interest—in healthcare,” which is great news for those of us hoping to become physical therapists.

Cool, thanks so much! I think I’m going to take the GRE in August too 🙂

Ok, well good luck making your decision! … I plan on applying to PT school this fall
I haven’t started the science pre-reqs yet. I start them next week and expect they’ll take about a year. I graduated from college as a psych major, so at least I have the humanities classes down. What was your major, and why’d you change to PT?
Here is my latest post for The PT Project. It’s about the Rutgers football player Eric LeGrand who was paralyzed during a game last fall. Even though doctors told him he would never be able to breathe unassisted, he has now regained some movement in his arms, and hopes to walk again one day. I’m… Continue reading Does Having a Positive Attitude Help?
