Not sure that ROI (return on investment) is really the best way to look at what college/university you pick but for some degrees, it could make a difference. The Atlantic has a comparison. Look at where UW is.
It's important to be clear about what this study is telling us and
what it's not telling us. The fact that the most valuable colleges here
seem so predictable is an interesting data point, because the
predictably best colleges tend to get the best students. So what you're
seeing here isn't just the quality of the school's education but also
the quality of the students it attracts.
Indeed, that's one reason why it's important to not conflate "highest ROI" with "best" or "smartest."
