The school literature says 98% of the 2005 class was employed 6-9 months after graduation.
I think you have to know all the facts and be realistic that you might not be happy with a 40 or 50K job when you're paying almost $1k a month in debt,
seton hall numbers?

A lot more.

Brooklyn's is almost twice this amount.)Percent in the private sector who reported salary information: 50%Median in public service: $35,000 Here is a blog devoted to Seton Hall's poor career prospects. http://bigdebtsmalllaw.blogspot.com . Apparently someone (Seton Hall?) asked blogspot to take it down.
I think it's funny that after starting a thread about how you should aggressively seek employment data from schools, wiimote is making judgments about the worth of schools based on over-simplified USNews employment data.
I wonder why the median is so low, any ideas? It is expensive too, I am apprehensive but I will be attending this fall. I have some solid connects in biglaw - as long as I don't finish bottom 50% I should be OK.Why do you think only 50% have reported income from private sector?
