Estimating my future PE comp?

Just joined a decently well known MM buyout shop on the east coast as an analyst out of undergrad earlier this year, offer was relatively standard in terms of street comp, $85k base, $35k target bonus, and $10k signing bonus. Any idea into comp I should anticipate as an associate? Past analysts have made the transition from analyst to associate in 2 years and associates not hired from undergrad are recruited from investment banks. I know this is vague and the numbers could have a wide range, but I wanted to get a target number to anticipate. Thanks!
