I would definitely like more details on those philosophy majors! Also, I wonder if some of the higher salaries for colleges have to do with the geographic area the graduates choose to work in... a NYC salary is going to pay more than a salary in West Virginia Boonies even if it is for the same position

Woo hoo! I'm an engineering student so these are definitely good news! I was very surprised to see philosophy as a well-paid field though...

Only 3/6. At least I got the engineering questions right since I'm in the oil & gas industry-sadly not in a position that earns that kind of money. I've never even heard of Loma Linda. Curious what Philosophy majors do for work that earns so well.
