    That's bs. She'd be lucky to make 30k out of suny albany.

    Well, it depends on her background. If she had great internships and prior work experience, she might get $50K--and then maybe she somehow got into a position that pays a bonus across the board (she would get it even though normally she would be in a position that wouldn't be entitled to a bonus). Only then would it be possible.

    But, in general, I'd say it's unlikely. People just graduating from Suny Albany are more likely to get the $30K like ncody220 said.

    Going to a better (or worse) program doesn't necessarily mean higher salaries, it just means better odds. A student at Wharton will not make that much more money that a student at say SUNY if they are given offers from the same company in the same office for the same position. The difference is, the Wharton student will problably have much better odds of landing the job.
