I'd appreciate help on this issue. I earned a BA in Pol Sci last year, got accepted to grad school for Spring 13. My fiancee and I are at the most critical time of our blessed lives and we agreed that one of us has to venture into Physical Therapy to secure our future financially and for our business plans in Out-patient rehabilitation...etc.
We've worked as a PT Aides for a while so we understand the field. From my observation, PTA's are always occupied with work, and that's good for its equals more money IMO.
Here's my dilemma; My fiancee just got a breakthrough in Oil & Gas, and she's also starting grad skl by January so I decided to be the one to pursue PT which I love and she decided to sponsor my tuition too. If you're in my shoes, would you
1. Go for the PTA program with a bachelors degree? This is faster and would cost less money then transition to DPT later because i already have a BA?
2. Go for a DPT? More expensive and time consuming, but more reputable?
Thanks in advance.
