I have nothing to dispute those numbers directly, but I'm going to take any list with a grain of salt after it puts BU over Harvard and ND over Chicago.
Duke is probably the better choice here, but there has to be some serious self-selection going on for their grads to make more "mid-career" than Columbia and Harvard grads.
As an update: I was able to find their methodology and they basically just used the median salary of those in the private sector around age 45. Touché Forbes. I still think Columbia opens many doors Duke may not, and obviously lower ranked schools (Yale out of the top 25) on that list are perfectly acceptable choices.
lol at mid-career earnings mattering
the people who are mid-career now graduated into a completely different economy than the current one
