Yesterday, I discussed that making money and wanting more money is a good thing. Sorry, state schools, but other, more prestigious universities are going to set their graduating students up to more money. Which ones stand above the rest?

Payscale put together the list of the 25 schools where their undergraduates make the most money 10 plus years into their careers. Here they are:

If you’re at one of these colleges, congrats, you’re set up for success if you’re in the right program. One thing I can tell you for sure is that these kids aren’t graduating with liberal arts degrees. If you’re not at one of these colleges, consider a transfer or just bank on connections or go to grad school.
