I called several dental schools today to see if I could get some numbers on what their graduates are earning upon graduation. Not one school wanted to give me hard numbers. I'm a skeptical person by nature and this made me wonder if the reason why they wouldn't do that is because the numbers right now, for whatever reason (economy) weren't good at all. One lady googled something while we were talking and came back and reluctantly admitted that it could be as low as $50-60K per year "while you built up your client base, much like that of a hairdresser." I about dropped the phone. Has anyone seen actual numbers? Heck I could have googled it (and have), I know good and well those schools track that. I just can't imagine graduating with nearly $200K in debt and making 50-60, that is not worth it at all.
