The NALP career data we used to create the table above are aggregated from salary information across the country and across broader ranges of income than we provide in the Debt Wizard calculator, but they still offer an interesting framework for your investigations.
About 80 percent of first-year salaries in public-interest positions reported from across the country were $55,000 or less. The two highest-range salary categories present the near non-existent (2.6 percent) possibility of receiving a first-year public-interest position earning more than $75,000. We have highlighted this in the Debt Calculator by greying out the associated income columns in those graphs in which the user has selected "Public Interest" as the Post-Grad Employment type.
