There is no deviation between the ABA numbers and the LST numbers, they are the same. LST uses the ABA numbers.

That's correct. I was using the job placement rate, not the us news rank.

City Law wrote, "My main argument is these numbers mean absolutely nothing. I imagine fewer Washington & Lee alumni keep in contact with their school than William & Mary based on Geography. Washington & Lee is located in Lexington, VA a town of 6,000 people in the middle of Virginia not near anything. Graduates likely leave the geographic area and do not keep their school updated."
What a ridiculous argument. Have you heard of the US mail? Have you heard of email?

W & M and W & L have comparable reputations and are in the same market. Yet one has a 73% employment score and the other a 49.2% score for 2012. This is a significant difference and William and Mary must be doing something right. I certainly hope that you are not arguing that W & M students are working harder at finding a job than those at Washington & Lee.

According to Law School Transparency, William & Mary has an employment score of 73% for its 2012 graduating class, while Washington & Lee's is 49.2% for the same year. William and Mary must be doing something Washington & Lee isn't.

Not only have W & L's job placement percentages declined significantly, so have the starting salaries for their recent graduates. For the graduating class of 2009, the median starting salary was $90,000. For the 2012 class, it was 57,404. In addition, the 75th percentile salary for 2009 was $160,000, while for 2012 it was $70,000. Finally, the mean went from $102,491 to $68,220. http://law.wlu.edu/admissions/ninemonthdata.asp
