What are the Top Paying Jobs?

If you're looking at what are the highest paying jobs for graduates from college you should consider engineering, economics or physics.

Payscale.com has put out a comprehensive list for people by college major (not counting people who have attained a graduate degree). You can see what people currently earn (1 or 2 out of college) and what they earn after ~15 years out of school (i.e. graduated around 1995). It may not surprise you, but the more quantitative the field of study, the more opportunity there is for a higher income.

For many of today's unemployed, this is not a possibility, but if you have a child in high school or college, this is important data that you can provide them when they are trying to decide what major to study.

Hilarious, charming, and ambitious.
Dare to disagree?
