They have a 2.85 curve. I think its a little harsh for grads and especially those planning on not working in philly where employers may not know of the schools curve. Also, i noticed that it has a slightly higher rate of attrition, althouhg its not academic. However, how do they exactly classify these attritions? Thoughts?
Another thing i noticed were the employment rates.At grad and 9 months post grad are 65.1% 95.7% respectively. The "at grad" number worries me. It tells me that grads are not getting their choice jobs, but rather are beign forced into jobs later down the road by debt.
Towelie's analysis presumes that everyone goes to law school to go into private practice. Certainly, going to a costly law school makes it more difficult to do anything but take a high-paying law firm job immediately after graduation. But many people go to law school because they want to be DAs or defenders, and they frequently go to schools that are more affordable in order to acheive their dreams. Temple is a school that attracts a fair share of these folks because of its trial advocacy program. To say that they are "screwed" out of their first choice of jobs ignores this reality.
