Hi guys ! I'm 19 and just earned my Associates in Arts. My goal is to earn a Doctoral in Physical Therapy, preferably at Texas Woman University.I will be transferring to University of Houston to get my bachelors first. Do any of you guys know someone that has got accepted to Physical Therapy school with a Bachelors of Science in Psychology ? What would be a good bachelors degree to pursue and that isn't sooo difficult, as I'm watching my GPA.


Any advice/tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Problem getting a psych degree is getting in all the hard science classes that are required for PT school. Most of them wouldn't be included in a standard psych program. But if you could fit them in to your curriculum I don't think it would matter if you applied with a psych major.

Good advice. Find out the science pre-reqs. you would need for a DPT program. They are getting very competitive for acceptance. Take them during your last 2 years as an undergrad. Maybe adding a minor in bio would help. Study hard for the GRE.
