For some of us, when it comes to picking a school, it’s all about location, location, location. Maybe we love skiing, and need to live near the mountains; maybe we can’t tolerate the cold, and need a milder climate to stimulate our brain powers.
Whatever the reason, if you know which geographic region is right for you, we can help you find the
best school in the area by income potential. (Care more about finding the best schools for art and design majors, sports fans, or engineering students? We’ve got all that and more covered in the College Salary Report.)
