I started out interested in PT school, but the PTCAS is screwing me over, the only reason my GPA is what it is, is because of retakes on classes. Well the PTCAS you need to submit for PT school averages ALL grades from your transcripts, that = me screwed! I checked, and all the PT schools here in AZ require the PTCAS application. My next choice will be OT. I am not seeing anything like the PTCAS on OT schools sites. Is there something like that for the OT programs you all went to? Or do they just look at the final grade of the pre-req's / degree you recieve, not counting in old grades from retakes? Also on a side note, is 45k the usual average STARTING salary for OT? I know it's based a lot on setting and location but, I'm willing to move, so I would like to just know if that's the avg starting. Also, how fast can you expect an increase in salary? As well as, how do OT make extra dough?
