Thinking of Physical Therapy School?
DPTs have $120,000 in student loans on average and starting salaries in the $60,000 to $70,000 range. Going to PT school will impact your student loan repayment strategy and key subsequent life events. Making a wise investment today will put you on a good financial path tomorrow.
Retirement, purchasing a house, starting a family, auto, etc.???
This leaves only $500 a month to allocate to key "life events".
Here are just a few questions you need to ask yourself before starting your PT program:
1. Is there a way to reduce how much I owe?
2. Are there expenses that I could/willing to reduce?
3. What repayment strategies are available so I can meet my financial goals such as buying a home or starting my own private practice?
4. How long will it take and how much of my student loans must I pay-off before I can incorporate my other financial goals?
