    Hampton University is not located in Washington, DC.

    Hampton University is in HAMPTON, VA! Hence the name…

  6. Terah Howard says:

    No credibility here, when you can't accurately identify the location of the schools. SMH

  7. Auryelle Ascue says:

    This is the worst article ever written! The information is not accurate at all, and should be RETRACTED, until the appropriate information can be obtained. This is just embarrassing!

  8. I find it very hard to believe that Prairie View graduates make more than Howard graduates given location of both schools, alumni status, school ranking etc. I would really like to see that data, how many HBCU alumni have actually been sampled for such.

    I know individuals that have graduated from Hampton, Prairie View Howard as well as others. You have to consider what each college is "known for"… Their popular Degrees. For instance… Business or Law or Nurse/premed. When you consider the amount of money a new grad makes in their first year, those in Nursing will probably start off making more than a Business Major. Especially in a City or Govt medical facility. However, in the long term, with good business, a Business Major will earn more. Just like a Lawyer. How many actually make 6figures right out of college….Very few. In that field, you have to work hard and climb the legal ladder to make a name for yourself. As for this study, it makes sense to me if considering specific fields in the first year after grad…as for Hampton, I am assuming they made the correction because I just read Hampton Va….For the record, I didn't go to any school listed. Just making an observation since this is something I study for my future College Grad..

  10. The headline really should have read "Location! Location! Location!" 4 of the schools are either in DC orwithin a short driving distance. Plus MD in general is an affluent state, partly due to its next-door proximity to DC. You think 3 of the schools being in the state of MD is a mere coincidence? I think not. Whenever the government jobs are plenty and within commuting distance, your paycheck on average will tend to be higher than those of the rest of the U.S.

  12. It does say Hampton in is Hampton.. What am I missing?

    This is all about location.

  14. Erwin Brown says:

    Houston federal workers make higher locality pay than those in DC.

  15. Chanel Henderson says:

    Houston is also saturated with oil, gas and energy companies that offer above average salaries.

  17. If you are using programmatic offerings and measuring baccalaureate degree holders, then Prairie View should do well. It has programs in all of the major engineering programs, nursing, business, architecture, agriculture and physical sciences. This, in addition to its proximity to the fourth largest city in the country, means competitive salaries.

    How can you impose Liberal Arts University ahead of Technical University like NC A&T? This is another draw names out of a hat without providing statistical proof.
