Glassdoor, a job-listing and recruiting website, just released its official ranking of the 25 highest-paying jobs in the U.S. The findings from Glassdoor's research are based on jobs listed on the site and sorted by median base salary, so keep in mind that these salaries vary by region and experience level.

Glassdoor's report does not take education requirements into account, and many of the jobs on this list require extensive education, including doctorates. If you're looking for a new high-salary career, make sure you factor in student loan repayments, and consider how long you'll have to be in school before starting work.
