Want To Make A Shit Ton Of Money After College? Go To One Of These Colleges Where Undergraduates Earn The Most
If you want to be drowning in paper after college then you should try and go to one of the colleges at the top of this list. In their first ever college rankings, The Economist has ranked 1,275 institutions based upon how much students earn upon undergraduate graduation, specifically they’ve ranked colleges based upon how much more money graduates are earning based on expectations.
The reason these rankings came about was because The Economist was tired of the convoluted rankings put out every year by every publication on the planet. Often those rankings weigh things like admission requirements too heavily, and tend not to focus on whether or not it’s a great value for the student. These rankings looks quite different then the ones you’re used to seeing, because it focuses primarily on alumni earnings (above expectation), and not all the stupid shit that goes with getting into college (like SAT scores) that have NOTHING to do with a graduate’s life prospects.
Below are the top 60 schools from The Economist’s rankings, but to see all 1,275 institutions ranked you can follow the link below to head on over to see that massive amount of data. I suppose it’s interesting to note that Harvard and the University of Pennsylvania are the ONLY Ivy League schools in the top 20, and that Washington and Lee University is ranked #1 overall. Washington and Lee is a school that last year accepted 1,280 applicants from a pool of 5,373, so it’s really not all that tough to get into…
