Dude, it's not even "half bad." It's FOURTH TIER. Third tier grads struggle to find work, let alone fourth tier.
Also, I really don't think that most grads get out WITH jobs, let alone making 50-60k.
Actually, the 25-75% salary range is 45,000-60,000 with a median of 55,892. And 91% of graduates reported, so its safe to assume thats fairly accurate.
You do realize that the schools self-report that information based on those students that actually respond to their surveys. How this affects the "median salary" is that a) Only students with jobs will respond and b) This includes ANY employment, not just legal employment.
Honestly, if Dayton's self-reported survey shows a median of $55k, that is really really bad. That means there are many students making far under that who never responded to the survey. Also, like I said before, that includes ANY job. I hate to break it to you, but I make significantly more than that now with only a Bachelors degree.
Spending $100k on law school only to make $55k is a dumb decision no matter how you cut it.
Lastly, I still stand by saying that TTTs and TTTTs should be shut down.
