Final Four based on Salaries

Payscale.com has the college basketball bracket based on median salaries of its graduates (5-10 years after graduation). Stanford ($113,000) beats Notre Dame ($99,100) in the final, with Duke ($96,800) and Georgetown ($92,500) the other two in the final four.

I always do my picks based on the quality and quantity of operations research done at the school. My final four this year were George Mason, Wisconsin, Cornell (in a tough division, beating Stanford, Kentucky, Texas, and Pittsburgh along the way) and UCLA, with Cornell winning it all. Needless to say, I won’t be getting paid this year: it appears that OR quality has, at best, a weak correlation with basketball prowess.
