I have passed the first 4 exams so far. If you are still in school I would recommend trying to pass as many as possible before you graduate. Studying and working full-time simultaneously is a real pain.
Okay, from prior threads, the average letsunner:
AGE: mid 20s
MAJOR: High School Equivalency "Diploma"
SALARY: $25 a week from mom
HOME: Mom's Basement
LAST HAD ANY: Never
Seriously, there's no way this many 22- to 26-year-olds are making over $60k. That's a real anomaly. Granted my chosen profession isn't the most lucrative, but I know plenty of engineers, and most are making only a little more than I do.
Here's my honest answer:
Perhaps it's just that the thread is attracting only those who want to brag. Not to mention the OP. Yeah, right.
Why not? A few engineers making decent money within a few years of graduating sounds right. Mine is probably more unbelievable since I don't have a college degree. Things just worked out for me.
No college degree

This thread would be a lot more interesting with some PR's added in! :)

10K XC 32:32
Weight when PRs were run: 128 lbs
Current weight: 202 lbs
What if I told you the AVERAGE engineering major makes over 60K upon graduation? That would mean more than half do, right?
Maybe you live in an area that doesn't have strong industry so the engineers there aren't really in demand and willing to work for cheap, the cost of living is significantly below average, or the engineers you know went to no-name schools that doesn't have companies that pay well recruiting there.
Don't worry, if we stay engineers we will top out barely over 100K. The folks on wall street and consulting make us feel poor.
