What are the best majors to choose at West Point if you want to make a lot of money? I read that the average graduate's mid-career salary is around 120k. I also read that the average mid-career salary for a graduate that majored in management in 123k. Does that mean that if you want to make more money you should not choose engineering majors? I read that the average mechanical engineer nationwide makes about 85k. Do mechanical engineers that graduate from West Point make significantly more than 85k a year on average?
