With due respect, virtually every t14 is doing this.
"With due respect?"
Where is your evidence? I doubt "every t-14" is paying employers to hire their graduates temporarily in order to boost their employment rates. This method blatantly employed by Duke to game the rankings is pretty unorthodox for the top 14 schools. Otherwise, I suspect that ATL would have gotten wind of it by now, and would have already posted this alleged information to troll the schools.
