So as the economy gets worse, DAVIS GETS BETTER
You do realize this number can be manipulated so so easily
That is the POINT. How can an "above average" school like Davis in the middle of nowhere legitimately raise its employment rate by 20% in a span of 3 years amidst the worst economic crisis in 80 years?
By hiring them to work in the library, that's how.
It's a smaller overall class, so it's easier to see variation in the employment figure from year to year. Of course the numbers could be fudged with non-legal employment, but because of the size of the graduating class, I wouldn't be surprised to see the employment data vary.
Davis = around 200 grads per year. An extra 20% to their employment = an additional 40 people with jobs at graduation. If we were talking a 5% or even a 10% jump I might agree with you. Keep in mind all of this is occurring during the worst economic downturn in 80 years, and the legal sector in California has been very badly damaged.
