Making this kind of money could be very helpful to the 44 million Americans who owe more than $1.5 trillion in federal student loans and 4.2 million who were in default as of 2016.
The average debt load for 20-year-olds with loans is $22,135. For 30-year-olds, it's $34,033. So, the more you make right out of college, the easier it could be for you to pay off, or begin to pay off, whatever you may owe.
How much money you make exactly will depend on your individual circumstances, of course, like the amount of experience you have, what company you land a job with and what state you work in.
