Of the 11 four-year colleges in Idaho, some of the most well-known are University of Idaho, Boise State University, Idaho State University (ISU) and the College of Idaho. Almost every known gem has been found in the Gem State, but the top job types are mostly in healthcare.
The University of Idaho is a college with some of the highest-paid graduates, both at five years after graduation and at 10 years after graduation. The University of Idaho Vandals have enough school spirit, and earning potential, to make up for their relatively small population.
