When looking at this data, keep in mind that average and median salaries do not provide the full picture of entry-level compensation. These numbers are based only on graduates who reported their salary to the Office of Career Services, and individuals who earn a higher salary are typically more likely to report their salary to our office.
To put these numbers in perspective, NALP has published a salary distribution chart indicating that few graduates earn an average or median salary.
Below are salary distribution charts for Loyola’s classes of 2009-2011 as well as an additional chart of combined salary data for the three classes.
