    I came across a Forbes article that has a similar, but slightly different bent to the study.

    Top Colleges For Getting Rich - Forbes.com

    I would think looking at the top 10% of each school's grads may be less relevant than examining the median.

    I think they should have looked at all alums of the colleges surveyed as opposed to just those with no advanced degree. It would allow for a much larger sample size and it's not like you can't claim that UG still has an effect on one's career even if you do obtain a graduate degree. It would be interesting for comparison purposes, if nothing else.
