So I'm looking at the new rankings, and happy that W&L, my top choice at this point, didn't drop. They have an awesome S/F ratio, decent grades and LSATs, and a good rep from peers and professionals.
Then I look at their job placement percentages. 76.9% at graduation - only 91.2% 9 months out.
To find a worse 9-month job placement rate, you have to drop to Utah at 57. Does anyone have any idea why? Everything I hear about W&L is that they have a small but great alumni network and really look out for their own.
I don't anticipate being in the bottom decile of my class, so this shouldn't affect me, but why is their ranking so far below comparable schools? Anyone?
