WSJ: Ivy Leaguers’ Big Edge: Starting Pay. PayScale Inc. looked at starting salaries for various professions for graduates of Ivy League colleges and other colleges and then compared the salaries for graduates at their mid-career.
The results showed that starting salaries were higher from Ivy League colleges, but the rate of growth was the about the same.
The study also looked at how mid-career salaries compared with starting level salaries. Engineers as a group saw the lowest increase — 76%. Other careers, including liberal arts, tended do much better at their mid-point.
