What school’s new graduates are earning the most money? Hint: Cross all Ivy League schools from your list of candidates.

Graduates of Loma Linda (CA) University, which educates many students pursuing health-related careers, reported the highest starting salaries of all graduates included in a recent survey of 600 schools.

PayScale, Inc., which conducted the study, said Loma Linda grads reported an average starting salary of $71,400. MIT graduates were a close second at $71,100, while graduates of Harvey Mudd College, the California Institute of Technology and Stanford University rounded out the top five.

Princeton was the only Ivy League school to crack the top 10, coming in at number seven.
