We very strongly suspect total pay is higher, especially for graduates who pursue careers in the lucrative fields of tech, finance and consulting.

Also, we’d be remiss if we didn’t add that before you take the table above too seriously, we want to clearly state that those numbers are simply medians. If you decide upon graduation that you would like to work for a large Fortune 500 with good job benefits and security, then you likely going to earn less than the median of your graduating class.
