A lot of students dream of going to the best schools because it also brings good opportunities after graduation. Is it really the case or not? Are students really getting their money's worth? Here are the Top 10 schools in the country and also the statistics at how much debt students get themselves into in order to enter.

The study was conducted by Nitro, an online resource that helps incoming students plan and choose the best college for them. It also helps students with their educational financing.

The list is based on the data from the U.S. Department of Education and compares student earnings and how much they pay for their student debt loan 10 years after they graduate.

The ranking, on the other hand, is based on the U.S. News and World Report ranking of the top schools in the United States.
