One other factor that has to be taken into account when evaluating employment statistics:My law school, like many law schools with large part time/evening programs, had a significant number of people who graduated in December. The employment surveys for the December grads were collected in February, at the same time as the May grads. Most (if not all) of the December grads spent December, January, and February studying for the February bar as opposed to looking for a job. Their post grad employment data, however, gets counted with the previous academic year in which they graduated. Considering that only two and a half months pass between graduation and data collection, this could significantly affect the statistics for the entire year's graduating class.
What is your point? Are you just arguing that it may not be as bad as law school transparency says?
