Did your PT school tell you an average salary to expect after graduation? Was it accurate?
Sometimes that salary projection may have been spot on, but for others it may have been very different. It isn't your PT school's fault. Salaries are not always accurate when you find them online.
Sure, you can look up the average salary for a PT, but that number varies depending on where you are, your experience, and in what setting you work.
This is exactly why we created the salary calculator, to take real data and make it available to PTs. So you're paid what you're worth... and also, not surprised by a co-workers salary like I was.
