    According to Harvey Mudd College grads earn more than Harvard grads. I understand that it's part of the Claremont Colleges system here in CA, but I don't know much more about it. Here's a paste of part of an article:

    According to a report released Thursday from salary-tracker, petroleum engineering majors and graduates of Harvey Mudd College are taking home the biggest paychecks. While mid-career salaries fell 1.5% overall between 2009 and 2010, engineers, scientists and mathematicians continued to rake in the big bucks, as well as students who graduated from Ivy League schools.

    Harvey Mudd (you have to love the name) is all about science and engineering. It only awards bachelors degrees, doesn't have doctoral programs and isn't a research powerhouse, so it's not quite as famous as Throop University down the road there in Pasadena. But it's similarly selective, a place where everybody was the best in their high-school class and boasts freakish 1500ish SATs.

    They seem to do ok.

    Harvard and Yale graduate a lot of arts majors and Harvey Mudd specializes in math, science, and engineering.

    Cal tech

    CAL TECH IN PASADENA was up in the list - a best bet in my book!

    Of course! It's hard to beat Cal Tech for name recognition, too. Not being an engineer, I have of course heard of Cal Tech, but Harvey Mudd was new to me.
