ML would probably sttart you between 60-70. They did it for me. There are other considerations though. Area of country you are servicing, natural market, etc.

Don’t know about focusing on the futures side of the business, but a wirehouse is the only place I know of that will give you the starting salary you seek.  Just be aware that at most wirehouses the higher the starting salary the higher the hurdles you need to meet to graduate.
