In 2003, BYU CS graduates earned an average of $48K upon graduating. I
wish I knew the median, standard deviation, and geographies, but I don't.
Probably at least half of the grades took jobs outside of Utah. I think
your $45K figure is too low. I would put the average Java developer with
3-5 years experience at $60-70K, and $80K would be in the stratosphere.
