Lucky guess, my college major

The WSJ has a sortable list of 173 college majors, and provides unemployment and salary information on each of them.  Via Arnold Kling.

I am fortunate to have chosen one of the Top 10 in employment and earnings potential, "Mathematics and Computer Science", which basically includes my degree in Operations Research, a field I had never heard of until I got to college. I knew I didn't want to be an electrical or mechanical engineer. I could have ended up a civil engineeer, or, gulp, studied business in Keith Olbermann's school.

For you atheists, better lucky than smart. For you theists, God is good.
