The average salary for East schools is $47,229. The average for the West is $44,343. This looks a lot like the academic comparison I did of East and West schools the other day, in which the Mississippi schools kill the West and Vandy props up the East. Take Vandy out of the East and the average salary of a graduate is basically the same, $44,950 in East, $44,343 in West.
If interested, you can deep dive the UGA stats here.
I looked up my alma mater, the University of North Alabama (sometimes known as TUNA, and yes we once tried to rename the school paper -- without success -- the TUNA wrapper) and I'm happy to report my salary beats the average. Go Lions.
Also, I computed "bang for the buck" numbers for the SEC data above. In other words, the cost as compared to the salary. The best is Texas A&M, followed by UF, then LSU and UGA.
