Examined the association between college characteristics (e.g., selectivity) and the earnings of college graduates 5 years after graduation, controlling for various factors, such as student background, major, and occupation. Results suggest that students may choose to avail themselves of the least expensive alternative that provides the major in which they are interested. (SLD)
