Probably all the liberal arts majors dragging the median down...

Is there a breakdown by major or occupation?

A good grad from anywhere (or even someone who never went to or graduated from college) can make it strong or f*ck up.

It's just that places like GIT, as opposed to GSU or whatever else, attract more quality students from high school. Same goes just about anywhere. It's not necessarily the intrinsic quality of the institution on its own (if they received a bunch of low-quality students, there's little they could really do), but more so who goes there. But that should be obvious.

Of course the selection is a very strong variable in this case. However, I believe that a good institution can provide additional value, if you choose to take advantage of your opportunities.

Quite true. I think the factors are bridged.

GIT's site has one, but it's not very reliable. It's a survey where only a few people respond.
