To find the colleges that make their students rich, Forbes first control for student background, looking at things like the average SAT scores of incoming students, and the percentage of student body that receives financial aid. Then they calculate, based on those background factors, how much you would expect graduates at each school to earn in their careers — and compare that to their actual earnings. Schools that do the best job raising their students above expectations rank higher on the list.
