If you need to make a lot of money right after college, then perhaps it's time to start looking at schools with an "IT" in the name. Or go into mining!

Liberal arts isn't for everyone, and we understand that college is a place to learn more than how to make a buck. Students at these schools, though, earn the highest starting salaries in the nation, according to Payscale.com, which has the full list posted on its site. That's handy if you want to pay back the loans that will pay for classes, if you want a debt to income ratio healthy enough for a mortgage or just want a few extra nickels.
