Who do you predict will win March Madness this year? Maybe you're rooting for the team with the best record in your favorite conference or have picked one of the underdogs. While it may make sense to look at three-point percentages and rebounds per game, online salary database PayScale has started a tradition of ranking the teams in the tournament by a different factor: alumni salary.

For the fourth year in a row, PayScale has pitted the schools in the tournament against each other according to the median annual salary for a graduate who is working full time; namely, graduates who are now 5-15 years into their careers, approximately 30 to 40 years old.
