Wiimote baffled
« on: May 24, 2007, 07:32:37 PM »
I just looked up Brooklyn's job placement statistics and I'm suprised to see their median private sector salary is $112,000! There is apparently an amazing disparity between similarly ranked tier 2 schools. On the one end you have schools like Denver or Loyola which have median starting salaries of $65,000 or so and almost half the class unemployed at graduation. On the other end you have schools like BLS with median starting salaries in six figures and the vast majority employed at graduation.

This begs the question, where can we see (1) Employment @ graduation and (2) median private sector salary for all tier 2 schools? Has someone summarized this information into one easy to access chart?

Average starting salary isn't the only factor that goes into law school rankings, you know.

You need a new hobby, this one isn't amusing anymore. Not that it ever was to begin with.

I still can't find where someone is begging the question.

This thread begs the question...how much of a flame this is going to become...or how much of a troll you are.
IU-B '10

Journeyman, I am dumbfounded as to how you got into IU and W&L with your numbers. 155 LSAT and you applied to Vanderbilt? Honestly?

When someone who considers anything below T14 to be TTT wants to know job prospects for tier 2 schools, you know where it's going.

What does TTT mean anyways? All I ever knew it to mean is "to the top" when bumping a thread.
