Have you always dreamed of having your very own one-bedroom Manhattan apartment like Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City or a middle class person in the 20th century? Well, hopefully you were having that dream while also studying for the LSATs.

September’s median monthly asking rent for one-bedroom apartments on the island that affordability forgot was $3,271 according to Streeteasy. Since a majority of landlords require tenants to earn 40 times the rent, that means you’ll probably need to be earning around $130K a year to seal the deal on your own private pad.

According to, here are a few jobs with an average salary of $130K. It can't be that hard to get hired as an associate dentist, right? 

• Estate Manager

• Business Intelligence Manager

• VP of Finance

• Director of Compensation

• Technical Product Manager

• VP of Human Resources

• Chief Clinical Officer

• Business Development Manager

• Senior Technical Recruiter

• Analytics Manager

• Account Executive

• Associate Dentist
