How Much Money will you make After Graduating?

moneyWhen President Barack Obama announced the release of a new federal College Scorecard in his weekly address this past Saturday, he said the website would give Americans “access to reliable data on every institution of higher education.”  Sounds good right…

“You’ll be able to see how much each school’s graduates earn, how much debt they graduate with, and what percentage of a school’s students can pay back their loans,” he said.  Again, cool right?

However prospective students who utilize the revamped tool in order to estimate their future earnings probably will not get a realistic sense of what they can expect to make after graduating. And if they’re checking out the individual state websites with Geo specific wage data as well, they’re likely to end up even more confused than enlightened.
