Ok, so I just got an offer of admission from Washington and Lee with money. And I'd really like to go. But the problem is that I have an obligation I need to first perform for the next two, two and a half years. If W&L will let me defer, it's wonderful, but this is highly unlikely as I was a WL admit.
Under any circumstance, I was looking at W&L's median salaries and..... it's pretty low. First, only 49% of graduates seem to go into private sector, and even then, the median salary is $85,000. And job placement rate at graduation is like, 75%???
What's up with this? Other schools in the neighborhood don't seem to suffer this badly. Is W&L's #22 ranking completely undeserved? I mean I really like the school, I would love being in Lexington, but I definitely want to have a future that I planned on having, especially if I am going to be attending law school and failing to perform my duties and completely disappoint/desert my family. A six figure paycheck would mitigate the situation very much. But that doesn't seem likely at W&L.
