...and we wonder why we're in such terrible trouble. :shk:
S/F for a clear and from what I can see, honest look at how things are these days. (I'd tweak the position of Doctor/GP....That was Pre-Affordable Care Act for their making lots of money, I think)

It looks like the survey is based solely on average pay scale versus average degree costs.

Evidently the article is not about moral values.

I can only gather that the values of 'best' and 'worst' are assigned by the average cost of the degree compared to the median time it takes to pay off one's loans - which is total bull sh!t if you subscribe to the notion that the best degree one can choose, if one opts for higher education, is any field of study one is attracted to, alongside a student's serious commitment to make a positive influence in the world with his/her field of study. Great find, though!

Oh I thought your OP meant best and worst MORAL value LOL! It would be an interesting study to see if in fact the more moral and ethical you are, the less you get payed
The pay versus cost analysis is one piece of the puzzle, but being that it's financial, it's the most important piece.
