Use your own words to create a personal essay that responds to the question below.

What is professionalism in the context of being a student in a doctor of physical therapist degree program?

You cannot make edits to your personal statement after you have submitted your application to PTCAS. Your personal statement will be sent to all PTCAS programs to which you apply, and so you should not personalize it to any specific program. PTCAS staff will not review your essay response for grammar or content.

Technical Requirements

You are limited to approximately 1 page (4,500 characters, including spaces). Some formatting characters used in programs such as Word (angled quotes, accents, special characters, bold, underline, or italics) will not display properly. Therefore, PTCAS recommends that text be copied and pasted into the web form from a plain text editor such as Notepad, rather than Word.

Q: If I am applying to multiple programs, will the same essay be sent to all of them?

A: Yes, the same essay will be sent to all of your designated PT programs. It is not possible to make any changes to your essay once you have e-submitted your application.  PT programs may require applicants to submit school-specific essays in addition to the standard PTCAS essay.

Q: Can I print my personal essay or save it to a disk and mail it to PTCAS?

A: No. You can only submit your PTCAS essay by entering the text into the appropriate section of the online application. PTCAS will not forward any personal statements that are received through the mail or email.

Q: Why are there some strange punctuation marks in the essay I saved to the PTCAS application?

A: If you paste text from some word processing programs (i.e., Microsoft Word) certain formatting characters such as angled quotes, accents, and other special characters will not display properly. Please review your final text and make corrections to the format as necessary. You are encouraged to compose your statement in a text-only word processor (e.g., Notepad), review your statement for errors, then cut and paste the final version into the text box.

Q: Can I edit or replace an essay after I have e-submitted my application?

A: No. Once you have entered a PTCAS essay and e-submitted, you cannot edit, replace, or delete it . If you notice an error after you e-submit, you must contact the PT program directly to discuss the issue with the local admissions office.

Q: The PT program stated it does not use the PTCAS essay. Can I leave the essay box blank?

A: No. You are required to enter at least one character in the PTCAS essay box. PTCAS advises you to enter an appropriate and complete response to the PTCAS essay question in case you decide to later apply to another program in PTCAS that requires it. You cannot edit, replace or delete your essay after you have e-submitted your application.
