From College Online:

The figures are out … The U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey college recently released a report on the majors of the top American earners. According to the American Community Survey, the college degrees that give you the best shot at reaching the 1 percent are pre-med, economics, biochemistry, zoology and biology.

What are the chances that certain majors are at the top tier of American earners?

    From time to time, including right now, when I check your site I get the ‘mobile version’ even though I am accessing it through a PC. I’ve selected the Standard version and I can’t think of anything I am doing that might cause this minor incovenience. Maybe it’s just me.

    Thought you might want to know.

    Woof & BR .. ditto that mobile comment .. I’ve seen a thread switch back & forth .. the buttons on the bottom don’t change anthing for me either .. I conjecture at times that a blogger changes the feed if posting via mobile .. sorta like the typestyle can change when initiated and not removed .. I prefer desktop view

    If I couldn’t display the same data in a far more readable table I would hang up my shingle. Speaking of shingles, a law degree better be included as one of the most important avenues to making it to the 1% in that ridiculous psychedelic maze above.

    boveri: maybe we need to get those corporate rights and tax payer benefits TOO .. america is its business not its PEOPLE .. every family needs an expert (and cash in the account) to hire a whole host of professionals to navigate todays society successfully / just like the corporate structure
