Money has published it's list of the "Best Colleges for Your Money" and the good news is that Michigan has two colleges in the top thirty schools and three in the top 100. They based their list on quality of education, affordability and expected salary in the first five years after graduating.

The wildcard in this formula (IMO) is the degree you get from one of these places. The highest "early career earnings" number on the list comes from graduates of Cal Tech. And that would be because they turn out a lot of engineers, computer geeks and scientists. Good luck with that "Fine Arts" degree - even if you get it from Stanford or Harvard. (If you did make it work - congratulations.)

The top rated school was Princeton - BUT - Michigan was number three, Michigan State was number 30 and Michigan Tech in Houghton was number 91.

Here's the list of all 711 colleges ranked. And you might want to check out some of the crazy tuition costs. Looks like Michigan and Michigan State are actually a good deal.
