Is your PhD in a hard science?

So if I go to a T4 and graduate in the top of my class I'm only gonna make $80,000?  What about the PhD I have?  Doesn't that get me an additional $20,000 in salary at least?

Yes it is.

Thanks for posting that excerpt Bonkers....very interesting!

Lumping 21-100 all together is ridiculous.  Obviously there is a huge difference between schools around 21-50 and 51-100. 

Yeah, as I mentioned earlier, I totally agree.   By the same logic, you can compare the average salaries (at each GPA range) for yale and compare that to the rest of the 189 schools, and Yale's would dominate! (since the lower schools would bring down the averages)  So, clearly, you need to go to yale only or else you will drop tremendously in your average starting salary!  ::)  Harvard/Stanford grads, beware!

Are the salaries calculated from the wages of all students in that grade range? Or are they just calculated from students who have job?  This makes a huge difference.

The study reported a very high employment rate not varying greatly by schools I think. That beings said, I think they are reflective of employed people not just employed lawyers
