This is a question I see here in many forms. Now, there may be an answer. (I say may because King’s Point, Great Lakes and Texas A&M aren’t included in the data.) The Equality of Opportunity Project analyzed data from different colleges and universities to “…construct mobility report cards … for each college in America. Our analysis sheds light on how colleges shape children’s prospects of upward mobility and how we can help more children climb the income ladder through higher education.”
Wait! Don’t let your eyes glaze over yet! The New York Times has an interactive site that lets you enter the name of an institution and see its stats, which you can then use for comparison. For instance, in the category of “Median student income at age 34” compared against other selective public colleges,the rankings are:
- SUNY Maritime College $90,500
- California Maritime Academy $85,800
- Massachusetts Maritime Academy $84,800
- Maine Maritime Academy $75,900
This is only one of many things the study compares. If you are interested, you can check it out here:
The study was originally published in January 2017, but I just saw it.
