Very VERY interesting. The average salary for the degree I will have in a year without a graduate degree is $58000. However it is one of the degrees with a salary that is most impacted by a grad degree.
My favorite cousin chose the right degree. Petroleum engineers make an average of $120,000 without a graduate degree. He didn’t major in petroleum engineering, but he works in the field. He double majored in chemical engineering and energy economics (just as impressive I think). In addition to be Cornell graduate, who rowed college crew, he is 6’6” and looks like a model.
Basically, I try to hook all my friends up with him.
