Re: Biased by cost of living
@erlrodd1- It is true, but that data is hard to factor in. You are right that the reason California dominates the list is the cost of living. That's why I found University of Delaware such a big surprise on the last.
At the same time, California not only has a high cost of living it also has silicon valley which means I demand for jobs. Obviously, high paying jobs are going to be where the tech centers are which is why it isn't asuprise that there are east cost schools, too.
The factors are hard to pin down easily. But the fact that a school like U of Delaware clearly has kids that go all around the country to earn more money but top schools like Wisconsin or North Carolina or Michigan don't says somehting about the program, doesn't it?
