I am sure that many people on this forum have expressed concerns regarding the overwhelming amount of debt that will follow most DPT programs, but I wanted to see what people thought about this issue. More specifically, does anyone else find the average compensation for PTs to be completely ridiculous? Three years of tuition, in my area, would cost approximately $80k. I have spoke with several of the business professors and accounting professors on my campus and everyone keeps telling me the same thing when I show them the numbers...things don't add up! I understand that if a person is passionate about their field of work, monetary return may not be a concern. I too am passionate about the field of Physical Therapy, but at the same time, I am not comfortable with digging myself into so much debt. I'm just trying to see how many people share my thoughts. Also, if not, can anyone provide with any information or insight that may help me overcome my fear of having to pay off debt for 20+ years? Thanks, I look forward to hearing everyone's opinion!
