Princeton Review Statistics
« on: April 15, 2004, 11:38:47 AM »

Hey all,


In the link below, when the Princeton review states that Emory has a "Placement Rate" of 98%, are they refering to placements for summer associates?

Somone please have a look at this and let me know whats up.

That's a great question... I assumed that it was Placement rate for students/graduates who ask Emory to assist with their placement. So, 98% of the students are employable...??

I think that the information PR gathers is going to vary from school to school, especially since each institution might report more or less information, more or less accurately, to make themselves look better. I did notice in the bookstore the other day that the 2004 edition of PR stated the average starting salary for g'town is $11,000, which I can't imagine being correct. They also had incorrect information on some of the tuition rates.
