My wife was just offered a job with an outpatient clinic. They offered 62k plus the usual benefits. Is this reasonable? it seems a little low to me and my wife, we expected Atleast mid 70's.

We are in a large city in Texas.

Does any new grads or anyone else have any opinions?

Depending on what city you're talking about,

Glasdoor says AVG for
DFW: ~$70,000
Houston: ~$67,000
Non given for SA or Austin. However, Indeed.com gives Austin avg of ~$84,000, and SA ~$80,000.
But depends on the clinic, experience, etc. Granted not everything online is believable, but I might see if there's bonuses or something that might add to your year end total or if you can get student loan payments added.

What's the daily caseload? Would she have a PTA or Aide or supervise? Will she be a scheduler?
