Most college students are on a tight budget for four (or more) years, making minimum wage at the pizza place on campus, but when graduation comes, who’s earning the most dough?
A recent study by SmartAsset identified schools where graduates earn the highest average starting salaries.
SMU ranked seventh with its new grad- uates topping $57,000.
UT Dallas came in 10th with its graduates topping $55,000.
The average starting salary for graduates of Texas colleges and universities is a little more than $51,000.
