The worth of a college degree?

A NY Times article Calculating the Potential Return on Your Major summarizes a recent report on What's It Worth?

I found this interactive graphic very interesting.

I was suprised to learn that the median engineering salary was much higher than the median for Law and public policy.

Hat tip: my mom.

That's because to make money in law you have to have a law degree, and this chart only shows the results for bachelor's. It would be interesting to combine this with post-graduate studies to see what happens then.
