Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2017

A major pro for TWU is the open and welcoming atmosphere from other students, faculty, and staff. As soon as you set foot in a classroom, it is immediately apparent that everyone around you wants to see you succeed and will do anything that they can to assure that that will happen. That is not to say that it is not a challenging program; the faculty and staff recognize that in three short years, we should be prepared to practice physical therapy at a doctorate level, and as such it is up to them to adequately prepare us through examinations, assessments, and practicals. They have set up challenges and expectations for us, but they provide us with all the knowledge and skills we need to know, along with the abilities and confidence to do well in the classroom setting, and eventually in a clinical setting. Something I think TWU could be better about is integrating the three programs that are on the Dallas campus: DPT, MOT, and BSN. We all pass each other on the stairs and sit in the same cafeteria at lunch, but there is not much opportunity for interaction. It could be a great way to learn about working together on a health care team, as could very possibly be the case post-graduation.

I am so glad I chose TWU's physical therapy DPT program. The Dallas campus is amazing, and the program is really top-notch. It's competitive to get in, and the workload is rigorous, but I am completely confident that I will be well-prepared to enter any specialty in the field of physical therapy when I graduate. The campus atmosphere is also really friendly and supportive.

Best choice for PT school in Texas! Hard to beat the twice of tuition, and housing can be affordable if you are careful. Faculty are always available and are very helpful. I'm glad that I chose this program and would do so all over again!

I could not have a made a better choice in choosing TWU for my graduate program. As soon as you arrive you can sense the friendly environment. The state of the art building is perfectly located in Dallas where there is plenty of extra curricular events and sights not far from the campus. The walk from the bus stop or the train station to campus is very manageable without the feeling of being in an unsafe environment. The Dallas campus is limited to one building with only three educational programs which make it easy to make friends and meet new people. The building is suitable for the number of students as there is very little competition for study rooms or computers. The only cons are that, because of its size, there is little extracurricular activities provided by the school such as intramurals. The library and building sometimes close down earlier than you need them to before tests and are not open on Sundays.

The pros of TWU are that it is a smaller class size, making it a better learning environment and more access to faculty assistance when necessary. The main con of TWU is that the word "woman" deters many males from applying, as a result my particular class is very limited. However, this is less of an issue in other years.

TWU DPT program has excellent faculty members, who want every student to be the best PT that they can be. The workload is intense and the program is competitive. Time management is key along with work ethic and motivation.

The Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program at Texas Woman's University is top notch. The faculty are all leaders in their area of expertise, who together make an exceptional team shaping the next generation of leaders in physical therapy. The program is nationally ranked as one of the best valued programs, and internal assessments/improvements are continuously made to maintain that status. Texas Woman's University's location in the Texas Medical Center is optimal for prime clinical rotations and labs involving real patients - a valuable element which helps integrate classroom and textbook knowledge with real-life situations. For these reasons and more, Texas Woman's University's DPT program is exceptional program of great value to our profession.

Excellent program with top notch faculty and facilities. You will be exposed to so much in the classroom as well as outside thanks to its great location. Cannot beat the price either. Difficult but worth the time and energy to graduate from such a stellar program.

Pros: TWU Houston is located in the heart of the Houston Medical Center and has great working relationships with all of the top hospitals in Houston. Your exposure and hospital hands on experience is limitless. In addition the staff is very involved and truly invested in you succeeding. Cons: TWU is a very competitive and vigorous program. You will have a very high work load in addition to several hours of clinic work each semester. Time management is key.
