  1. Those salary estimates are way too high. There is no way a median PA or a Physical Therapist is going to be payed 80-90K. That is unrealistic and misleading. Of course it depends where you are, but I livein CA, where higher salaries are the norm due to high costs of living, and you aren't going to find median salaries anywhere near these.
