Median private sector salary is 75k.most of whom accept job offers from private law firms and receive first-year salaries of $75,000 at the median.
The TLS profiles are very, very outdated.
The average private sector salary is 90k: http://www.law.uiowa.edu/careers/stats- ... salary.php
Median is also different than average but either way those statistics on almost all the schools through TLS profiles are outdated.
um ok and the link you gave me isn't?Starting salary information varies greatly between the type of employment and the location of employment. Here are the averages for the Class of 2006.
2006 is the last year that MOST schools have reported for there employment information (look at the USN report to confirm) so it is all we have to go by. I'm not arguing with you, no need to get husty. Just making sure the right information is out there. As for median being better than mean, I already said I disagree but that's just my opinion.
