300k TC if you have a family (solidly middle class). How long it will take largely depends on you. Someone working in a growing tech company could probably get there within ~5 years with the right skills, but usually those people are/were also part time faculty working on research and have a lot of other credentials. Also depends on what kind of data scientist you are, doing research for products like Oculus or just running some regression or classification models to try to engage people to watch ads for 10 seconds longer lol

Second year out of school, no masters, no debt, work in DS, $105k affords me a pretty nice penthouse studio in SF ($1,900/mo).

(Edit - yeah need a lot more to buy a house)

@D1 that seems like half the going rate for rent. What neighborhood and sq ft?

Take your current salary and double it. That is what it will take to live at the same level you are now. Great friend is in the film industry at more than $350k a year in LA and he has room mayes
