El_Che: In doing all these comparisons, you are forgetting one big element in the analysis - your personality and ability to sell yourself. The top 20% of students at most schools can generally find good jobs. For everyone else, their ability to speak and convince employers that they are "it" is the most important thing ever. A lot of what we red on this site and all over the net tends to focus on things that can be measured, like placement numbers, but there isn't much discussion of how much just being able to express yourself verbally can do for your prospects. My experience with you here at LSD is that you are very straightforward and likable. That goes a long way. Forget the numbers and stats and think about how good you are at selling and marketing your biggest asset - yourself. Personally, I have 100% confidence in my own ability to find the perfect job, no matter what my grades or school. That confidence has translated into opportunities. I applied to very few jobs this past year, and got interviewed at 90% of the places, and each organization I interviewed with made me an offer. Even the one that wanted a student with a ranking far better than my own. Pick a school that can do the most for you, and where you feel you can excel. Jobs and money will work themselves out, I promise.
hey che...you decide yet? i'm interested to know where you're gonna go.
i figured that's where you would end up leaning. after my visit to L&C, i'd definitely pick UW-Mad without even visiting.
