QuoteDoes anyone know the average starting salary for graduates, including both the public and private sectors?
At the admitted students open house they said the median starting salary is $62k/yr (if they broke it up by public & private sector I missed it).QuoteAnyone know what the summer job prospects for students are? I was offered a generous scholarship of 23k a year provided i stay in good academic standing, but even with that I would rack up about 60k in debt (at least). If tuition is 30k this year (think it went up 3k from last year), then by the third year, even with this scholarship, it would cost about 30k total. I also expect AT LEAST 30k for rent/living expenses. This is too much for me. Im very poor and can expect no financial assistance from my family. However, if I could expect to get a job and work for 20 hours/week my 2nd and 3rd years, then the rent/living expenses could be reduced substantially.
Even if you're poor now, paying $60k in debt after you graduate won't be a big deal. I would think the chances of finding summer employment would be pretty good.
i have 15k from undergrad too. What do you mean it wont be a big deal? I am suspicious of marquette's claim to 60k average starting salary too. I seem to recall it being much lower previous years.
