If you have hopes of landing a career that will make you a millionaire one day, a new report shows which universities you may want to consider when filling out applications.

According to a new wealth report by London-based consultancy Henley & Partners, just eight U.S. universities educated 35% off the country’s “centi-millionaires” — someone whose wealth is estimated at $100 million or more. The report found that as of December, the U.S. had 9,630 centi-millionaires.

While 65% come from other universities, more than a third of these wealthy individuals attended just eight universities. It’s a significant number considering that the U.S. has close to 4,000 colleges or universities.

Take a look at the eight schools that topped the list of universities multi-millionaires attended:

8. Princeton University

Located in Princeton, New Jersey, Princeton University produces around 3% of centi-millionaires in the country.
