What would be a reasonable salary range to expect if I entered forensic science? What is the long-term potential?

Updated Alpine, New Jersey

I have applied to several schools for Forensic Science, one is West Virginia University, which has the #1 Forensic program in the country ... its programs partner includes the FBI, in fact, 80% of their graduates are hired by the FBI. And I was accepted to WVU, however, I'm really not aware at all of what a starting salary would be for someone working for the FBI at entry level would be or even what to expect long-term. #forensic #college-major #college-selection #westvirginiauniversity

Hi, Jake!

If you're not familiar, the Occupational Outlook Handbook is a great place to start. The OOH has information about all the different job families and gives educational, professional requirements as well as a 10 year outlook. You can find information about forensic scientists here: https://www.bls.gov/ooh/life-physical-and-social-science/forensic-science-technicians.htm.
