  1. The median hourly earnings here doesn't seem to comport with job openings for college least I hope. I graduated in 2011 and work in Arlington; neither myself nor anyone I know makes close to $84,000. In fact, I don't think the data accurately reflects the title 'Best Metros for Recent College Grads' at all
