Which college major is most likely to catapult you into the top 1% of earners?



Zoology, surprisingly, is #4.

Via Harvard Business Review, citing the NYT:

The college majors that offer students the best chance of making it into the top 1% of earners are, in order, pre-med, economics, biochemistry, and zoology, according to census data cited by The New York Times. 11.8% of pre-meds crack the 1%, whereas the proportion of majors in economics, biochem, and zoology reaching that level are, respectively, 8.2%, 7.2%, and 6.9%.
