Employment numbers over time

Postby mrwarre85 » Tue May 03, 2011 9:36 pm

Hey all, anyone know a resource for viewing employment numbers over time? It would be nice to see what percent went Art lll clerk, private firms, etc from different schools over time. Schools outside of T20 or so do rise and fall with good leadership, alumni dollars, effective marketing and it would be nice to look at the trends over time.

Or maybe it wouldn't be beneficial at all and only interesting but.. Thought I'd ask.

The "trends" are pretty much the same. With the exception that law is now a more crowded field than it used to be. So, can you find lawyers from the local toilet school working at biglaw firms as partners? Yup you sure can. Will you continue to see that at the same rate in the future. Nope, you certainly will not. Why? Because the better schools are pumping out more grads than they used to back in the day, and the rare superstar who stayed home to the attend the local school back in the day doesnt do that anymore. Bottom line here is that if you are fishing for information to make you feel rosier about the school you are attending then yes, you can certainly find boomer generation grads from the school doing great things. But the fates of recent grads are what you need to concern yourself with.

TBF it's an improvement over his usual pastime, that being scaring the poor Emory prospectives to death and pissing off current Emory students while trolling for Miami (both the city and the school)
