SUMMARY

Going to school for Diagnostic Medical Sonography and Ultrasound Technology is not only a valuable choice, but ordinarily a necessary first step for undergrads choosing to begin a career as an obgyn, a midwife, or a lab technician. Interestingly, diagnostic medical sonography and ultrasound technology is an uncommon degree being the 225th most popular area of study. In the last year, there were 861 diagnostic medical sonography and ultrasound technology graduates. In-state tuition for diagnostic medical sonography and ultrasound technology at private schools is, on average, 3.2 times more pricey than their public fellows.

With only 59 colleges offering this degree there might be limited options as to the institutions which will have a degree program for you. If you're hoping to immerse yourself with other diagnostic medical sonography and ultrasound technology students, consider looking at schools in Pennsylvania which have the most students admitted to diagnostic medical sonography and ultrasound technology annually. More generally, the best region to pursue diagnostic medical sonography and ultrasound technology is in the Far West region with Oregon Institute of Technology, Platt College-Ontario, and Platt College-Riverside best representing the region. Interestingly, our pick for the best conference to major in diagnostic medical sonography and ultrasound technology is the Cascade Collegiate Conference with Oregon Institute of Technology representing the conference. From our comprehensive list on the best colleges, our selection for the best university for diagnostic medical sonography and ultrasound technology is Thomas Jefferson University.

The objectively 'best' school might not actually be the best school for every student. There might be tons of perspectives to consider when selecting college. Things like campus amenities, transportation services, and food could alter your choice on where to go to school. At authority.org, we have evaluated the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you want to know which diagnostic medical sonography and ultrasound technology university has the best campus, the winner is Rochester Institute of Technology. If, for example, you are mostly interested in which school has the top campus, we have a whole list dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through student reviews, professor reviews, government databases, and more so we can evaluate each major in an unbiased and informative way. You can find our well researched list for the schools with the best student life here and, from that list, our choice for the university with the best student life for diagnostic medical sonography and ultrasound technology is Bellin College. Are you curious why? Continue reading to find out more about Authority's top selections. Some of our picks will probably surprise you.

If price is a significant factor in your decision on where to go to college, you might consider avoiding Quinnipiac University. Quinnipiac University appears to be the most expensive college for diagnostic medical sonography and ultrasound technology, at least regarding out of state enrollment. That being said, we have an entire page for the most expensive schools that could put the expense at Quinnipiac University into perspective. Additionally, you could be interested to know that diagnostic medical sonography and ultrasound technology is the 329th most expensive program in America, with an average cost of $21,400. To zoom out a little, the most costly state for diagnostic medical sonography and ultrasound technology on our list is Connecticut demonstrated by a tuition of $46,790 at Quinnipiac University. To zoom out even further, the most expensive region for diagnostic medical sonography and ultrasound technology is the Mid East region which is best demonstrated with Long Island University with a cost of $36,452, Rochester Institute of Technology with a cost of $44,049, and Thomas Jefferson University with a cost of $40,680.

Our cheapest region for diagnostic medical sonography and ultrasound technology is the Rocky Mountains region which is represented by Weber State University with a cost of $14,973. On the bright side, the most affordable school for diagnostic medical sonography and ultrasound technology is Universidad Ana G. Mendez-Carolina Campus. Our entire list of the most affordable colleges can be found here.

In-state learners can expect to pay in the neighborhood of $8,800 for a degree in diagnostic medical sonography and ultrasound technology. That cost swells significantly to a median of $20,300 for the out-of-state public-school student. Our choice for the university representing the best value for diagnostic medical sonography and ultrasound technology: MCPHS University. Through this link you can see our comprehensive list about the schools we believe to be the best value in general. With that said, this idea is predicated on the assumption that you are an out-of-state student. A discussion of value changes when it comes to in-state tuition, but we do not know in which states any one student has residency.

Earnings for diagnostic medical sonography and ultrasound technology majors range widely, but two years after leaving college students will typically make around $51,200. While there can be much variation in earnings potential; top earners can enjoy pay up to $82,700. Straight out of university, the lowest end positions within the diagnostic medical sonography and ultrasound technology field make $31,900, which could be worse. The highest earning graduates from diagnostic medical sonography and ultrasound technology attended MCPHS University and if you want to find the colleges with all of the highest earning graduates, we have that too.

The all-around diversity of diagnostic medical sonography and ultrasound technology stands in the bottom, coming within only the 23rd percentile of all majors. The school with the highest composite diversity for diagnostic medical sonography and ultrasound technology is Long Island University and here you can find our comprehensive list of the schools which have the most diversity. The financial diversity of Diagnostic Medical Sonography and Ultrasound Technology only stands in the 35th percentile compared to all other majors. Racial diversity is even lower in the 29th percentile. White undergraduates make up the largest share, 68%, of students studying diagnostic medical sonography and ultrasound technology.

The median rating of diagnostic medical sonography and ultrasound technology professors is 4.5 stars, a rating which is 13% greater than the median across every major; this is a fairly good ranking. If you are looking for the most popular diagnostic medical sonography and ultrasound technology instructor in the nation, look no further than John Barrett at Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania. It may be surprising, but the highest ranked professors for diagnostic medical sonography and ultrasound technology from student rankings are at Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania. If we including information other than basic rankings it becomes clear that the school with comprehensively the best professors for diagnostic medical sonography and ultrasound technology is The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.
