In New Jersey we were ranked as the 4th highest paid state in the nation…the median salary per person is about 75K a year. However, there are some that are making WAY more than that. I'm pretty nosey so I wanted to see how much money some of these ballers actually made. One of my daughters is going into college in two years and I told her to look at this list and pick one! Listen kids, that’s a little something called return on investment.
