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?

What about Loyola? Actually, isn't Denver an expensive city too?

I think a table showing each tier 2 school's emdian salary and employed @ graduation would be very informative. I'm just too lazy to put it together.

Wiimote, I'm disappointed in you.  This is usually something you point out to everyone else while trying to "save them".

Starting Salaries (2005 Graduates Employed Full-time)
Private sector (25th-75th percentile): $70,000 - $145,000
Median in the private sector: $112,500
Percent in the private sector who reported salary information: 47%


Since less than 50% report, who knows how accurate the 112k is?  It could really be closer to 70k, or 140k.

I'm not trying to support your "All non-T14s suck" cause, but figured I'd shed some light.  My point here is that almost all salary figures outside the top, top schools are nearly useless.
