You'll likely take a 25K to 30K dollar pay cut, and that's IF you're able to find a FT position in an office that's hiring (there aren't many around). As terrible as America's Best is, it's the only option for many people graduating from OD programs these days. If the majority of new grads were finding their way into respectable positions in private offices, hospitals, or starting their own offices, I wouldn't be on here, regardless of the incomes that one could expect in those settings.
I'm here because most of you say "Private practice is the way to go," but there's no way for more than a few of you to ever get there.
