STEM Student? No Need to Overstress or Overpay on Elite Colleges

Today’s fantastic family finance article is:

STEM College Math

Yet another great thing about kids going into STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) fields: the prestige and expense of the college doesn’t matter much to future pay. That’s the conclusion of a study tracking 7,300 young adults 10 years after graduation.

So, STEM parents, no need to freak out about the kids getting into that top tier school. And certainly no need to pile on student debt seeking an unnecessary pedigree.

Have a kid eyeing a liberal arts major? Sorry. No relief on the college stress reduction front. Looks like a pedigree still packs a pay punch.
