    It’s hard to draw any conclusion without the bonuses matching each salary, too bad schools don’t mention that. I guess the UCLA guy with a $10k base salary in PE/VC must have a monumental bonus.

    Will we have a more meaningful table, i.e. median/std dev salaries of each school?

    If he’s in PE/VC, he probably negotiated a percentage of the fund’s carried interest, possibly in addition to a bonus. That $10K compensation number is most likely crap.
