Utah Tech University student Rachele Schulist earns perfect National Physical Therapy Exam Score

“This score is unheard of,” Drew Wilcox, assistant professor of physical therapy and the PTA program director at Utah Tech University, said.
Schulist took the test earlier this year and attended an award ceremony at the beginning of October to accept an award for this outstanding accomplishment that only .6 percent of test takers achieve.
“All the teachers in the program are very involved and invested in the success of the students,” Schulist said. “This was an awesome experience! I enjoyed going to class every day, which is not always the way I feel about school!”
