NYLS, which is a tier 4 school, boasts an average (or is it median?) starting salary of 95K. Granted that's higher than many similarly ranked schools and is probably a function of its downtown NYC locale; but I think most tier 1 school students who finish in the top 1/3 of their class must have at least a fighting chance at 100k or thereabouts. At least this is how it seems from everything I have read. Cardozo claims an avg (median?) starting salary of 101K, and they are Tier 2. Maybe I am wrong, but I don't think 100k is an unreasonable expectation for moderately successful students at T1 schools.
