If you're hunting for a college (or want to confirm that you made the right choice), payscale.com has posted its annual salary report -- and the 25 highest earning four year colleges may surprise you. It's not the usual suspects (although some of those appear, too), but a fascinating cross-section of schools in every corner of the country. Two numbers are listed for each school-median early career pay (graduates within five years of getting their diplomas) and median mid-career pay (10 years or more of experience)-and "pay" includes wages, bonuses, profit sharing, tips, commissions, overtime, and other forms of cash earnings. (In other words, not equity, not health benefits, and not retirement benefits.) To get the raw intelligence, payscale.com collected input from between 50 and 4,000 working graduates at each school. On par, what those survey respondents have illuminated is one simple fact: not all college degrees offered at all schools are equal when it comes to guaranteeing a decent ROI. You probably knew that, but now you get to know who the players are.
