Default Re: Some University Degrees Not Worth It At All

Tuition costs have gotten way too high, and the economy is very bad, but that study doesn't actually support any broader conclusions than "these people with these degrees from these schools at this average cost self reported these earnings."

For just a couple of things: People who have the grades and/or the money to go to higher ranking schools are likely to make more money after college than those who don't even if all other things were equal, and students who choose to major in humanities fields may not prioritize earnings to the extent that those who major in more lucrative fields.
