Return on Investment for College Education

Georgetown University recently ranked 4,500 colleges and universities by return on investment. You can find the complete ranking here (scroll past the explanation to get to the list, which is toward the bottom of the page). You can sort the list by short-term or long-term return, and get a “net value” for the college/degree you are considering.

Not sure what to make of the data? Read this article from The Washington Post for the idea behind the ranking, how the calculation is made, and how you can best use the information to help you make decisions about the college you attend or the degree you pursue.
