A bit surprised by this to be honest.

This is some great info that I didn't even know about.

I'm really surprised that psychologists don't earn more

This is great information. I start school in three days, and I may need to rethink my major. This came at just the right time!

I will share this with my son since he is torn between what his major will be. I'm surprised by some of these.

I wish the healthcare workers were higher, but not too shocked by the computer science. Both areas my son is considering.

I'm surprised to see biology so high on the list. I guess it depends on the specifics of what you use the degree for, but I've never known too many people who make much in a lot of the sciences.

Something to show the kids, but wonder what this will look like in a few years when they will be choosing their paths

Interesting information. Nice to see future return on education investments. Makes a person stop and think about future earnings a lot.
