    I'm in school for pt right now.

    Currently PT's make about 60-80 k a year.

    usually geriatric and skilled nursing facility pt's make the most money because those settings are 'less desirable' than say outpatient or a rehab hospital.

    it is possible to exceed 100k by becoming your own boss, or running a clinic, or becoming a supervisor, etc. But making over 100 K takes a lot of time as a practicing PT first.

    I hope that helps!!
