There is no way UCLA isn't near the top and some of those colleges are liberal arts only, there is no way people make that much money right out of college.
The rankings are only for undergraduate education. Cal tech is #1 for graduate education. But even still, harvey mudd graduates just get better jobs i guess...but i agree cal tech is better ACADEMICALLY tho not better at getting their graduates HIGHER paid jobs.
going to a smaller private school, like USD, UOP, the CLaremonts, USf, etc, are clearly better in achieving a better result.
Also, quit glorifying the overrated UCs.
