Anyone know what a computer science bachelor's degree can expect to earn after graduating?

Thats a hard question to answer, I would check out the BLS for information about salary. Computer science is one of the weird fields where some people don't even have degrees going into the field. My guess it would be higher than 50k.

It depends on where. I make $27/hr as an undergrad intern in the SF Bay Area. That works out to be roughly 55k per year as full time. In my area, I would expect to make $60k minimum as a grad with bachelor's.

Sad that the cost of living is so high that they have to pay interns so well just to attract students

That is part of it. The other part is that tech companies on the edges of the bay area, such as Livermore and Pleasanton, have to compete for interns with some big names like Google, Facebook, etc. that offer their interns $40+/hr and the added prestige of having been interns at these companies. So, even though COL is lower in the East Bay Area, they can't lower pay too much or nobody will pursue them over the bigger companies that offer more overall, of which there are many.
