This statement is false, plain and simple. You can review the data for yourself here, which comes straight from the federal government:staythecourse wrote: ↑Wed May 22, 2019 7:35 pmI would love to read the article if you have suggestions on how to get through the paywall? It seems to be in conflict of some of data linked on here on past threads which I think was from ?payscale. I'm from IL and clearly remember that UofI (state school) grads have higher starting and mid career salaries then those who grad. from Northwestern and UofC. I remember there wasn't a great correlation of the "name" of the school and future salaries OUTSIDE of those of HYPS+ MIT and a few others.ks289 wrote: ↑Wed May 22, 2019 11:59 am
“What’s disturbing about this research is that it shows that even if you distinguish yourself as a great student at a Tier 4 school, and by some miracle you get into a good grad program, you aren’t likely to wind up with the tools you need to ever catch up to those people who went to a more selective four-year college,” Dr. Avery said. “You want to think that at some point the playing field is level, but the truth is increasingly clear that the answer is it probably never is. By high school, it’s pretty much over.”

As someone who also grew up in IL and went to Northwestern, and have dozens of friends who went to both, I can tell you that their average outcomes are not at all the same.
The U of I grads are mostly working in F500 companies as engineers or financial analysts making 90-120k with 2-3% salary growth per year.
The Northwestern grads are mostly in consulting, tech, law, medicine, at 200k and above.
