Not a Comp Sci major , but I believe that it can get better for you. I have a MIS degree and have been working for 9 years. I am currently making 10K more than I thought possible two years ago and that is not including my bonus and stock options. It is still realistic to expect high salaries in IT, it is just a matter of proving your importance to your company and finding the right company. Most companies view IT/systems as an expense and they try to minimize the cost rather than paying employees what they deserve.
