It’s too late to start the application process for spring 2014 intake now. Usually you have to begin atleast 6 to 8 months before for US universities as the application deadlines will be over before 2 - 3 months of the program start date. You can now start the process for fall 2014 intake. Also the minimum requirement for English proficiency is 6.5 in IELTS. You can get the list of universities who offer Master in Physiotherapy in uniguru.

Dear Ranjith,


Greetings from Uniguru 


Thank you for your query .


Good to know that you have decided to pursue a MS in USA in Physiotherapy.

Deciding on the colleges to apply to is an important juncture in the college admission process. It starts with careful assessment of where you are and what do you realistically expect to achieve.


From your profile , I can see that your IELTS score of 6.0 which is lower than that expected by most US universities for Physiotherapy .

As such US universities base their admission and scholarship decision on the basis the overall student profile which is academics, GRE score and Co- curricular activites , hence I feel you have a good chance to secure admission in reputed US universities for Physiotherapy ,  if you retake the IELTS exam and aim at atleast a 6.5 score and also take the GRE exam as well 

For this you can refer to the uniguru website for preparation help


Do note you need to start the application process atleast 6 months before the intake month - for Spring 2014 intake all the deadlines are over since the session commences from January there 


Hence you can plan to apply for Fall 2014 intake , you can consider taking the GRE and IELTS by Jan 2014 and work on the other application requirements since the Fall 2014 deadlines are also quite close - you have deadlines till about April to apply for this intake 


Here are a few I would recommend you to apply to:

California State University Long Beach


California State University Northridge


Do note that, The Uniguru website has an extensive library of career related articles and videos. 

If you want to gain in depth knowledge about a career or course, universities and admission process, we suggest you to refer the website closely


We hope the above information has helped you achieve clarity with regards to your query.


Also, feel free to write to us if you have any further queries.
