Will you be pursuing a CPA? If you plan on doing accounting long term, that is pretty much a must. Some companies will even help you along in terms of paying for you take the test while you're working for them (probably with a promise you will remain with them afterwards). I'm not sure if you meet the requirements to sit for it yet though.
What type of accounting will you be going into? Corporate, Public, Tax, Audit, etc?
A lot of people think accounting is just a narrow field full of tightwads who count money all day. This could not be more false.
Not trying to scare you, but I went to school for accounting and worked in corporate sales tax for 3 years and I don't feel I even breached the surface of what the field as a whole entails.
On another note, make sure the company likes you as much as you like the company. Salary is a huge factor in employment decisions, but who you work with, how they treat their lower level employees (non executives/non dept heads), working environment, etc... all become important in the long run and can wear you down if it's not suited to you.
ETA: I didn't even really answer your question I guess
Just so many factors I would imagine matter when it comes to accurately giving you a salary figure for an "accountant"
