Dartmouth a Good Investment, Says WSJ

The Wall Street Journal’s Real Time Economics blog has ranked the top institutions in terms of return on one’s investment. We landed in the number five slot, two slots behind Harvard but ahead of the rest of the Ivies. All in all, not a bad showing.

It’s interesting that the research was conducted by Payscale, a company that placed us #1 on starting and mid-career median salary not too far back. It should be noted that both rankings are based on self-reporters (albeit it quite a few of them) rather than scientific samples.
