Opinion piece related to a recent study by the University of Tennessee that found that people who graduated with a bachelor's degree in four years saw higher wages than those who graduated in six years. The difference was about $6,000 on average. The study posited a few reasons for the difference including the head start of on-time graduates and the fact that "some employers may see a difference in aptitude between those who graduate on time and those who don’t."
