The Wall Street Journal tackles this question today, both qualitatively and quantitatively. On the latter, it points to HumanCapitalScore.com, an interesting-sounding site that, the WSJ reports, “will generate a 10-year range of students’ likely postgraduation income based on their test scores, high school and college attended, grades and major. Developed by People Capital, New York, a peer-lending concern, as a tool to predict students’ creditworthiness, the calculator can also be used to compare the likely outcome of various possible choices of colleges and majors. It makes projections based on data sets from more than a half-dozen government and private-sector sources, encompassing hundreds of thousands of actual grads. Prices start at $19.95 to compare two scenarios.”
