The Bay Area has three of the top 10 colleges in the state which can boast their graduates get the highest median salary.

We can't claim number one; that goes to CalTech in Pasadena, where graduates make $69,600 in their first job.

However, number three is Stanford with $58,200, followed by Santa Clara with $52,900, and Cal comes in at number six with $51,400.

Seattle-based PayScale Incorporated ran the survey to produce those rankings.
