I will be starting my first semester in the DPT program this fall! So far, the college, staff and my peers have been great. They are always very informative, ready and willing to help and are very prompt with response time.

From the grasp I had from touring the school, seeing the classrooms, meeting the professors and my peers, I can tell Mercy has a great program. The teachers are always available and keep a 100% "open door policy" that allows you to come in at any time to talk or ask questions. They have very advanced 3D printing technology to help understand the human body and great online resources.
I have not started Mercy College yet, but so far I am so pleased with what I have been going through. With an awful end to my senior year, Mercy College welcomed me with open arms. With online acceptance day explaining all I need to know, to an online orientation which I got to engage in a zoom with other students there. My questions were answered and I even laughed during it.
