Newsflash: college is expensive, even at public universities. But there are some state schools that pay off more than others.
A new ranking released Wednesday from PayScale shows which colleges and universities -- public, private, religious and secular -- that have the best return on investment.
The Huffington Post sorted through the state schools to find out which taxpayer supported colleges are paying off the most for graduates.
Below is a ranking of the public colleges with the highest return on investment. The first number listed below each school photo is the weighted total cost for a graduate based on in-state tuition rates, and the second number is the 20-year net return on investment.
