"I think anyone who is interested in pursuing physical therapy should take a long look at Old Dominion University. The full time faculty and adjunct faculty are amazing and truly experts in all of their respective fields. They prepare you extremely well for entrance into the workforce following graduation and licensure. The physical therapy program is accredited and has a 99%-100% licensure pass rate which puts them in the top tier of all physical therapy programs in the country."

"I feel that the academic rigor of the program compels me to study without causing too much concern over my GPA or the letter grade I receive in a course. I feel that the material we are learning is mostly useful in clinical practice and that the main goal of the academic environment focuses on learning and understanding the material instead of earning a certain grade. I have had excellent opportunities for clinical internships as well as many opportunities throughout the semester to work with patients, either standardized or volunteer. The academic rigor and environment as I explained are definitely pros. Most of my cons have to do with the surrounding area, for instance safety and transportation, and also maybe student diversity."

"My decision to attend the DPT program at ODU was based on my professional experiences while working in a outpatient PT clinic. ODU DPT graduates had a reputation of being highly competent and preferential for hire compared to other recent graduates. As a second year student, I find the program to be very challenging however, highly rewarding. Unlike many other programs, the academic curriculum at ODU includes numerous practice opportunities with real patients with actual diagnoses/injuries consistent with our particular learning unit and the use of standardized patients. The faculty & staff are excellent with answering questions and facilitating an optimal learning experience."

"Professors, adjuncts, and TA's are very knowledgeable and willing to help. You can tell everyone is very serious about what they do and is here to help the students become good PT's. The best part of our program are the Standardized Patients that we get to utilize. I feel that those sessions really help prepare us for the "real experience" in a clinic/hospital."

"I truly believe I am enrolled in an excellent Physical Therapy Program. It is certainly challenging, but that means that I am learning what I need and developing the appropriate skills to begin work immediately on graduating."
