Talk to Current Students

As you decide which physical therapy program to attend, we know you have lots of questions: “What’s their program really like?” “What can I do to better my chance for acceptance?” “Why should I choose this program over another?” and many more.

We have several helpful links in our Prospective Students area as well as links to information about the application process and frequently asked questions (FAQs) And some of our current DPT students are happy to talk to you as well. We’ve included some background information on them and their e-mail addresses below.

 

Meet some of our current DPT students – we hope you contact them with your questions!

Michael Tejano, DPT Class of 2015

Michael Tejanomtejano@westernu.edu

Hometown: Linden, CA

Undergraduate school: University of California, Santa Barbara

Undergraduate major: Psychology

Why did you chose WesternU DPT?  “I chose WesternU so that I could be part of a small school that focuses on quality and not quantity. The fact that the faculty take their time to interview prospective students tells me that they are committed to selecting candidates that will best represent the profession.”

 

Christina (Tina) Chen, DPT Class of 2015

Christina Chencechen@westernu.edu

Hometown: Cypress, CA (Orange County)

Undergraduate school: UCLA

Undergraduate major: Biology

Why did you chose WesternU DPT?  “The faculty was one of the most personable faculty that I had met during all my interviews. Since the beginning of the school year, I have seen this demonstrated by the faculty and they take the time to learn our names, interests, and about who we are as people beyond a DPT student. I also liked that it was near my home and it was one of the more affordable private schools. One main thing that I noticed during the interview day was the potential the program had and how much room it had to grow. My friends who had graduated from WesternU’s DPT program had only good things to say about it.”
