SUMMARY

A degree in Pre-Physical Therapy Studies is a valuable choice and generally a necessary first step for undergrads planning to begin a career as an assistant physical therapist, a sports recovery trainer, or a movement studies specialist. In fact, pre-physical therapy studies is a very rare degree ranking as the 330th most popular major. Last academic year alone, there were 267 pre-physical therapy studies graduates. In-state tuition for pre-physical therapy studies at private universities is, on average, 3.2 times more spendy than their public fellows.

With just 34 schools having programs for pre-physical therapy studies you may have a smaller selection of institutions that will have an option for you. If you're looking to immerse yourself with other pre-physical therapy studies undergraduates, look at schools in Ohio which have more students admitted to pre-physical therapy studies than any other state. More generally, the top region to pursue pre-physical therapy studies is in the Great Lakes region with University of Akron Main Campus, University of Dayton, and The University of Findlay best representing the region. Interestingly, our selection of the top conference to major in pre-physical therapy studies is the Mid-American Conference with University of Akron Main Campus representing the conference. From our comprehensive list on the best colleges, our belief is that the best school for pre-physical therapy studies is University of Dayton.

The objectively 'best' school is not necessarily the best school for you. There might be lots more angels to weigh when choosing school. Features like campus amenities, transportation services, and food would sway your thoughts on where to go to school. Here at Authority, we've weighed the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you want to know which pre-physical therapy studies university boasts the best campus, the answer is University of Dayton. If you are primarily interested in which university has the top campus, we have an entire page dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through government databases, student reviews, professor reviews, and more so we can compare each major in an unbiased and informative way. Here you can find our comprehensive list for the colleges with the best student life&nbspand from that list, our selection for the university with the best student life for pre-physical therapy studies is University of Dayton. Are you curious why? Continue reading to discover more about Authority's top recommendations. Some of our decisions will probably shock you.

If price is a primary deciding factor in your choice of where you attend college, you might consider avoiding University of Dayton. University of Dayton&nbspappears to be the most expensive school for pre-physical therapy studies, at least for out of state attendance. That being said, we have a list of the most expensive&nbspschools that could put the price tag of University of Dayton&nbspinto perspective. Additionally, you may care to know that pre-physical therapy studies is the 257th most expensive degree in the nation, with an average cost of $26,800. To zoom out a little, the most costly state for pre-physical therapy studies in the country is Massachusetts demonstrated by a cost of $36,300 at the main university in the state Becker College. Even more broadly, the most costly region of the U.S. for pre-physical therapy studies is unfortunately unavailable due to missing data.

Our cheapest region for pre-physical therapy studies is the Far West region which is represented by Western Washington University with a cost of $23,562. On the bright side, the most affordable college for pre-physical therapy studies is University of Akron Main Campus. Our comprehensive list of the most affordable universities can be found here.

In-state learners can anticipate paying around $10,000 for a degree in pre-physical therapy studies. The cost balloons significantly to an average of $21,200 for an out-of-state public-school undergraduate. Our choice for the school constituting the best value for pre-physical therapy studies: University of Dayton. On this page you can see our comprehensive list on the universities we see as being the best value&nbspoverall. With that said, this discussion is predicated on out-of-state tuition costs. The value proposition changes when in-state tuition costs are considered, but we do not know in which states any one student has residency.

Earnings for pre-physical therapy studies students vary widely, but within two-years of graduation students will often earn in the neighborhood of $56,900. There is much variation in earnings potential; top earners can make up to $90,900. Right out of college, the lowest earning positions within the pre-physical therapy studies field make $35,100, which could be worse. The highest earning graduates for pre-physical therapy studies come from University of Dayton&nbspand if you are looking for universities with all of the highest earning graduates, we have that too.

The all-around diversity of pre-physical therapy studies sits quite poor, ranking within only the 16th percentile of all programs. The college with the highest composite diversity for pre-physical therapy studies is Becker College&nbspand here you can find our general list for the schools which have the most diversity. The financial diversity of the Pre-Physical Therapy Studies major only is in the 58th percentile compared to all other majors. Racial diversity is even lower in the 14th percentile. White undergraduates make up the largest share, 77%, of those studying pre-physical therapy studies. Additionally, 64% of undergrads seeking a pre-physical therapy studies degree are women.

We have insufficient professors data for pre-physical therapy studies to make the conclusions we normally would have made in this sentence. If we consider data beyond just rankings we find that the college with the overall best instructors for pre-physical therapy studies is Samford University. One will find an explanation of our ever evolving ranking methodology for the best overall professors here, along with some of the top instructors in the U.S.

Finally, the hardest university to get into for pre-physical therapy studies is Oakwood University. While we are unsure why you would be interested, we have a comprehensive list of the hardest colleges to get into. But, here at Authority we hope you believe that considering the higher education world with context primarily built on superlatives could be said to be the root of many of higher education's fundamental problems. We hope you explore our other pages on individual colleges and explore some of our helpful background articles on beneficial things to look for as your school search continues.
