"Marquette University is a renowned educational institution for good reason. It is home to world-class professors and researchers, many of whom are involved in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy Program. A highly competitive direct admission program, its rigorous schedule challenges students while preparing them for professional excellence. Many lab sessions accompany each course and provide direct application of course material that will be used throughout our clinical experience as physical therapists. The staff knows each student by name and is involved in their success and professional development. It is an honor to attend this institution!"

"Marquette University became my home away from home. I was blessed to be apart of the Athletic Training program and Physical Therapy program. Both programs provided me with an outstanding curriculum that pushed me to become a better clinician and better person. I began clinical work right away, which was great to apply what I learned in the classroom to real life scenarios. Marquette not only had great academic programs, it also has great clubs and organizations on campus to help students grow and meet new people."

"The Doctor of Physical Therapy Program at Marquette University is an amazing program. The professors of the program are one of the best if not the best in their respective fields. The rigor of the program is intended for students to learn holistically, and become the best Physical Therapists in the field."

"I love Marquette University. I am currently in my fourth year of the Doctorate of Physical Therapy Program, which means I am taking a combination of undergrad and grad courses. The professors are extremely dedicated, the classes are exciting, and the school truly is a family. The administration has the best interest of the students in mind, and every resource you can imagine is available to you as a student. Despite being in the heart of Milwaukee, I always feel safe and cared for on campus. I cannot give Marquette enough praise for their quality of education and as well as their display of Jesuit values in the inner city."

"The physical therapy program is competitive with excellent professors and course material. The program itself is well worth the money. Cons include that housing can be expensive, and living in downtown Milwaukee does not always feel the most safe."

"It's an excellent program and it's ranked 12th in the US but it is very expensive. Our scholarships/grants don't carry over to grad school from undergrad. They also don't offer any scholarships/grants for grad school. The price for undergrad is already through to the roof and to add on, the prices for grad school at Marquette is even higher than undergrad. Other than that, the teachers are very attentive to their students, always willing to learn from their students and adjust to their needs. They are readily available and always expect the best to help us succeed."

"The classes are small enough so that you can easily get one on one time with teachers. There is a good amount of equipment to practice with and plenty of lab time to do so."

"The quality of education at the Marquette University Physical Therapy program is unbeatable. The faculty is top notch and the curriculum is strenuous. While the education is spectacular, the cost of attending Marquette University is very overwhelming."

"There is a great opportunity to learn here at Marquette. The workload might be a little heavy but at the end you feel that you are a head of a lot of people. Besides that you collaborate with other labs which creates a good opportunity to learn and think differently."

"This program has been a wonderful experience in developing each student, myself included into the best professionals we can be. Through extremely supporting faculty who dedicate their time outside of classroom time to best benefit the students. In addition they serve as great mentors helping us to succeed. Our course work is very comprehensive and more than prepares us for our clinical experiences and ultimately our careers! At times the weeks are busy and the work is taxing, but what graduate program does not have those moments? The community that is developed in this program is unmatched and I know I will always have a family supporting wherever my career adventures may lead me!"

"The graduate program for physical therapy provides an excellent education. Professors care about the students as a whole and not just academically. The professors truly want their students to succeed professionally and in any other aspect of life. Everyone in the program is very knowledgeable and confident in their teachings; they are willing meet with students outside of class. Students in the program want to be the difference in the world, and have the strongest passion for helping and caring for others."

"Overall, Marquette University is a great college to attend. Especially, Marquette's physical therapy program because it is ranked #12 in the country. Some pros about the physical therapy graduate program are the high education quality of the program, the networking opportunities available, support from faculty, and the social life. The cons about the program is that since Marquette is a private university, it is very expensive and you will have to pay out of pocket during the school year even if you are offered the maximum amount of financial aid as I was. Ultimately, Marquette University offers a high quality education and is a great choice as long as you are able to afford it."

"Overall, I am extremely satisfied with Marquette's Physical Therapy graduate program. The greatest aspect of the program is the faculty. The staff is willing to go above and beyond for the students and they truly have the students' best interests in mind. Most of the staff is extremely engaging and knowledgeable about the physical therapy profession. Their ability to make uninteresting subjects, interesting, is truly remarkable. The biggest con I feel that the program has is that certain students are better prepared for certain course than others. For example, students that choose Exercise Physiology or Athletic Training as an undergraduate major are required to take an anatomy as well as a kinesiology course. Though these classes are of a basic level, they give students an introduction to the material. Students who chose majors outside of these two, do not have access to these classes. Therefore, they may be slightly disadvantaged when the graduate courses come along. To the program's defense, the professors teach the graduate classes as if no one has seen the material. However, in all reality, some of the students benefit from hearing the information twice, vs. those that are receiving it for the first time. I feel that that the program should either stop encouraging students to be "diverse" by choosing other majors, or they should give these other majors the opportunity to take similar classes as the exercise science and athletic training students, if they are already on the DPT track."
