$100k Starting Salary for SMU or UTexas Grads?

Postby headache » Sun May 15, 2011 6:47 pm

Hi, Texas resident here. How likely is it that UT grads earn a $100kish salary within the first 5 years, if they stay in Texas (not necessarily Austin)? Or SMU Law in Dallas? Is this just laughable? If these students pursue law in Texas and succeed academically (not superstars, but at least middle of the class) in either school, is there a possibility of a $100k starting salary? Or is the average starting salary for these grads much lower? Anyone know any exact stats/numbers/salaries here?

Is it worth paying sticker for either if the intention is to work/live in Texas?

median at SMU :lol:

UT, I'd say 50/50 shot of 100k within 5 years.

SMU is not worth sticker IMO
