I bet Penn is pissed at whatever kid in their graduating class ruined their 100% employment @ graduation rate....

I know him!

how did it happen?

Ok, so I'm not sure what year he was, so this might have been a different year.  He messed up their 100% streak (apparently they had a streak of X years all 100%).  Anyway, he had Penn calling him all the time offerring to set him up with a job.  He is a URM, and he did fine at penn, so he could easily have gotten a job.  The deal is that he wanted to try working in the music industry, running his own production company I think.

Anyone else find it funny that a group of budding attorneys are pretty much thumbing their collective noses at our nation's copyright laws?

I hope we're not all barred from sitting for the bar one day  ;)

Even Yale doesnt have a 100 percent employment rate...If some people choose to take some time off and not work, I dont see why that should be viewed negatively. I think some law schools dont reach 100 percent (or as high as they can) employment simply because some of their graduates choose not to work immediately after law school.

awwwwww CRAP.

I keep trying to convince myself I want to go to GULC and not Boalt because of the relative strength of their int'l program, and that moving to DC from the bay area won't suck THAT bad, etc etc......

it was a lot easier to convince myself of this when the rankings were closer.

eh, whatever. i'm visiting all the schools this week and next, so i'll see what feels right. screw u.s. news.

Yikes!  They went down 10 points?!  ???  Still worth giving up a full scholarship to Whittier?    I'm still thinking YES.  :-\
Pepperdine it is.  I'm a sucker for an ocean view.
