I don't know if I know anyone who is doing 100k at 28, and most of my friends went to some of the top undergrad/grad schools in the country and are overall successful.Originally posted by: Idontcare
By 24 you should be happy with $60k w/college degree behind you OR be in grad school to set yourself up for making $100k by 28.
Anything less probably means squandered opportunity or squandered time not making opportunity earlier in one's life...
May seem like a lot of $$$ until you throw wife + kids into the equation around the same time.
Ultimately though anything people post here has to be taken with a grain of salt.
You can do something where you make 100k working 80hours a week or make 80k working 40 hours a week. Up to you what you prefer. If you solely base your personal satisfaction over your career upon how much $$ you make, you won't really ever be happy.
