Here yah go. I dont know come up with your own conclusions
Why do people always show this when they're trying to show that American is better?
1.) Someone attending GMU is more likely than someone at American to practice in VA, right? If they practice in southern or western VA, the cost of living is quite lower than Maryland and DC. Therefore, their salary would reflect this.
2.) There's a significant difference in the rate of unemployment. Assuming the provided numbers are accurate representations, 1.784 of every 223 GMU graduates are unemployed while 21.195 of every 471 American graduates are unemployed.
3.) GMU has a slightly higher rate of clerkship positions. Some of these clerkships are highly competitive even though they pay less. They drag the median income down.
4.) American students are less likely to seek lower paying jobs because they're in debt up to their eye balls while a GMU graduate is in a better position to accept a lower salary.
None of these are conclusions. They are just reasons to look beyond median income. It's also a shame that LST doesn't account for debt. It'd be nice to know the % of students in X amount of debt.
