Macalester – at $47,195 a year – has made the list of colleges where alumni earn less than high school grads.

Now, to some extent these rankings are misleading; students’ earning potential is whatever they decide it’s going to be.

Which, given the number of International Victimization Studies majors Mac turns out, may be a bigger problem than most places.
