Any recent graduates able to post their salary offers? Has anyone on the 7-9-11 ladder received a signing bonus as well? Any insight on more current salary data would be extremely helpful.

Thank you!

Got my offer.

BS in Computer Science
Grade 7 on specialty scale: 47,000/year
No signing bonus

I’m pretty happy with it considering cost of living where my SF is (super cheap)

MS
GS 9 $58,466
Will be 9-11-12 by the beginning of 3rd year
No relocation/Signing bonus as far as I can tell

Pretty expensive to live where my base is, but this pay isn't unexpected.

Yeah, it took awhile to process the fact that I'm making a 3rd of what my peers are making despite being top of my class.

I want to comment here though, smart shelled out something around $150k for me to go to school for two years where as my peers took out loans.

Welcome. The Unofficial SMART Scholarship Forum is fully supported through this banner add. In the past, I have relied on this income to pay for all hosting and domain charges, but it has only covered half of my expenses in recent years. If this is the first time you are seeing a banner here, it is because an adblocker has prevented it from appearing (I don't blame you). If you have found this forum valuable, I would appreciate it if you consider supporting its upkeep.

Thank you for being a part of this community.
