Median Salary: Penn State vrs Temple; worth looking at?

Postby rehtulx » Tue Mar 15, 2011 1:36 pm

Temple and Penn State are 60 and 61 now in rankings. However, I noticed Penn State is 60k median salary for private and Temple is 132k...is this a result of Temple placing in Philly versus Harrisburg/Lancaster area, or something to worry about?

Median starting salary is next to worthless as a statistic because it's so easy to manipulate. Where do you want to work? Philly or central PA? In most instances, Temple is going to be the better bet because of both its location and its price.
