Colleges to Make You Rich

A recent article of by Natalie Doss lists colleges that help their students from all kinds of background prosper after they graduate.

Doss writes, “Our list doesn't just rank the schools where graduates make the most money. Instead, we're interested in schools that raise their students above salary expectations. These are the colleges who can take a group of students that, statistically speaking, shouldn't go on to earn much, and help them beat the odds and make big bucks.”
