Leveling up as an Applicant

This podcast has provided me with the knowledge and direction I need to feel confident in my chances at PT school acceptance. Joses, Casey, and the rest of the team hold nothing back in the content they deliver. So much value for free! I recommend The Pre-PT Grind podcast to anyone aspiring to be a physical therapist or healthcare professional.

Thank You

I feel so blessed to have found your podcast. Not only has it given me a perspective on what and how to successfully apply for PT school, but it showed me I’m not alone, which as a non-traditional student I have felt quite often.

Life-Changing! Relit my passion, my fire!!

Moving forward again! My drive had been slowly extinguished in the process of overcoming one life struggle after another. Ironically, I ended up stalled at the moment I was finally free to move forward on my career goal in physical therapy. Joses and Casey and their guests have great stories that light up the path. I’m embracing the Pre-PT Grind. Thank you guys!
