Are medianpwned kids @ WUSTL-GW-Illini-BU all in same boat?

A lot would depend on debt, which give WUSTL and Illinois, generous schools, an advantage; however, their markets seem to be limited and competitive.

What other schools would you add to this list?

The collective voices on this forum say...

Everybody who is the aforementioned, "medianpwned" and is not in Yale.

Check out the T20-30 thread - its on the board somewhere. General consensus is that T20-30 schools are a crapshoot - I'm at BU and know median people with bigfirm jobs lined up, but also people around top 10% who struck out. Boston tends to be a less competitive market than Chicago or DC (Boston has a few non-NLJ, market-rate firms that take decent summer classes - e.g., Choate Hall and Stewart), so I think BU/BC are holding up better than its peers, but when people median at MVP are striking out, none of these are even close to a safe bet.
