That is certainly disheartening. The economy is definitely in terrible shape right now and it doesn't seem to be getting better. I currently go to a T-4 and the job opportunity issue is one of the biggest reasons I'm trying to transfer.
I go to a T-25 and when we have visiting professors here they are terrible compared to the quality of education you get from the actual profs. The subject matter may be the same, but that doesn't mean you learn it as well. That's one difference.
Exactly true. Many Tier 4 schools don't even want to hire other Tier 4 graduates. You should listen to people on this site about Tier 3 and Tier 4 schools. Sure, people are having a hard time finding a job with all types of degrees but, there is a big difference between a Doctor who has an M.D. from a lower-ranked medical school and a Lawyer who graduates from a lower-ranked law school. Doctors have much more stringent admissions policies than Lawyers have when it comes to further education. Law schools will take people with various degrees whereas medical schools expect you to have a certain amount of math and science courses before even applying. Let's not pretend that a tier 4 law school is anything like a lower ranked medical school. Many tier 4 law schools are just paper mills that are out to take your money. As far as attrition rate, you can find out how many people actually failed out. Don't waste your money. Go get a graduate degree or a something else. Stay far away from Tier 4 schools.
