The PT program is a big part of the school in the eyes of the Dean. It's not going anywhere.
Don't worry so much about small movement up or down in the rankings. The only people that still pay attention are 0L's, Profs, and alumni of the T14. Your job prospects won't change much if UH goes from 56 to 60. It'll probably stay in the same area for the most part.
Oh, dropping a few rankings doesn't bother me, unless Baylor passes us up (and that's just a pride thing.) I know it doesn't affect job prospects.
I don't think they should get rid of the PT program. It's great for people who need to work, have family needs, etc. But it probably would change the jobs #s for the FT students.
I just remember all the chatter about GWU (i think that's who it was) taking a hit in rankings because of their PT program. I never figured out the reason why tho.
