Army Baylor DPT
Hi! I know this is late. I just wanted to get a feel for how the acceptance process has been going for this years Army Baylor DPT program. I am currently in my senior year, an MSIV in Army ROTC. My GPA is low and not competitive for PT schools.
Right now I am at about 3.0, with a 3.3 prereq GPA. My GRE score is at the required combined score of a 300. I have a 152 in quant and 148 in verbal which is also low. I ran out of time with taking and preparing for the GRE with Advanced Camp this summer. I was told ROTC cadets have some priority over civilians trying to get into Baylor; however, I did not receive the desired Education Delay from the Army. I know Baylor and Ed Delay are not related but they have similar qualifications and look at GPA heavily. I have been a PT technician for the past year, as well as volunteering at the VA in the therapy department and outpatient and inpatient shadowing hours. My undergraduate degree will be in Biology which I know is popular with DPT but its on the harder side of undergrad majors.
I guess I'm just trying to see if I have a chance at getting into Baylor. I know my numbers are very low but I have all the experience and leadership skills that they are looking for. I have been in contact with staff members at Baylor because they worked with my school's Battalion. I have worked with one staff member for the past 3 years asking questions, shadowing her while she was doing research and writing a paper with her as well. If anyone has any thoughts or advice I would greatly appreciate it. It has always been my dream to be a PT in the Army. If Baylor doesn't work out for me I will be going reserves with the hope of finishing my DPT at a civilian school or possibly going into the Guard even though my dream is Active Duty.
