Are you going off to college this fall? At this point everyone may be happy to be accepted somewhere and is looking forward to a new academic year. But before too long it will be important to start thinking about post-college life—and post-college salaries. It won't come as much of a surprise that the majority of the hardest undergraduate schools to get into are also among the schools whose alumni command the highest salaries. But the Ivy League isn't the only path to big bucks. As a new study by PayScale reveals, diplomas from other liberal arts, engineering, and even state schools can also result in hefty paychecks. To see which colleges open doors to the highest salaries, read on.
Editor's Note: The list does not include many small colleges, such as Amherst, Bowdoin, Williams, and Swarthmore, because the sample size of graduates in the 90th percentile of mid-career median salaries was too small.
