Ivy League grads earn more than do graduates of less selective colleges. Also interesting, those who have the chutzpah to even apply to Ivy League colleges earn more on average than do grads of other colleges.

Ivy League graduates make more money than do graduates of just any college. Shocker, we know. The figure is actually that Ivy League graduates make 32% more upon their graduation than do grads from other schools. According to an article on college decisions in “US News & World Report” by Brian Burnsed (an article in which The Ivy Coach is featured), college applicants are looking more and more at output data from the universities to which they’re considering applying. As cited by “US News & World Report,” output data includes job placement rate, average starting salary, four-year graduation rate, as well as the percentage of students who go on to matriculate to grad school within a few years of their college graduation.

And it’s not just college applicants who are looking closely at output data. Business school applicants are examining output data even more closely…particularly since many business school applicants are leaving the job market to go to business school. They want to make sure they’re going to be in a better position after they invest two years in business school – not to mention investing quite a bit of money! So it might well be worth examining that output data with a close eye.

If you’re wondering about how to find out a college’s output data, ask for output statistics directly from either the university’s admissions office or from the university’s career center. And be sure to check out our post on Ivy League Recruiting or on Ivy League and Career. There really is a significant difference in the output data for Ivy League colleges as compared to other universities. Does that surprise you? Let us know your thoughts by posting below!
