I hope it becomes a norm so I can go around telling people I'm a scientist.

My null hypothesis is no

Theoretically, I majored in math as well.

Want a Six-Figure Salary? Here Are the 5 Most Valuable College Majors of 2018........

most actuarial science graduates achieve their six-figure salaries with just a bachelor's degree. Only 22% of the graduates surveyed held higher degrees, by far the lowest percentage on this list.
I kind of thought "major" implied bachelor degree.

I often tell people that I have a value degree. Just a math degree from a cheap state school. tack on a few exams and get an EL job ~60k, within 5 years you can be at 6 figures. Even quicker if you're not a slacker like me.

but you dont see me telling my kids to follow in my footsteps. Worked for me cause I screwed up my life and was lucky enough to land where I did.

It does, but what is not implied is whatever is needed afterward.
Biology majors who eventually become doctors are defined as Biology majors for this "study."
Pre-Law majors (is there such a thing?) who become lawyers, same thing.

Even the actuarial science majors have "improved" themselves by passing exams and getting pay raises and promotions due to them. It's not the degree alone that has led to six figures.

Shitty article, using shitty statistics and data interpretation. Please move to the innumeracy thread, stat!

This sounds like a decent backstory that needs to be expanded on.
