Agreed. I think most DPM salary studies (including the one cited) look at your guaranteed base. It generally doesn't include your bonus structure for production. 65-85K isn't horrible for a base and one could clean up with production bonuses because a lower base salary generally means a lower bench mark for bonusing. There was like 50K difference in my first year base and what I made in my first year. Students often misunderstand this stuff.
