Recommended Extracurricular Activities
Consider planning out your extra-curricular activities by semester, just like your pre-requisite courses. Starting early helps avoid the stress associated with cramming everything into the last few semesters prior to the application.
Minimum Recommended Extra-curricular Activities
- PT Experience: 150 hours of PT experience in at least 2 different settings. Some schools ask for 1000 hours
- Volunteer Service: 45 hours during each of the pre-PT years including the year of application
- Leadership: 2 different leadership positions during the pre-PT years
- Research (strongly recommended): 50 hours. Must be hypothesis-based
