So on those numbers, almost half the class is employed by W&L at graduation (51/115 are post-grad fellows). 14 people report making 6 figure salaries 9 months out. Those numbers look like a pretty bad deal at sticker to me. Given that you're paying 2/3 tuition and COL, you don't just need a job, you need one that can service a 1000+/month loan payment.
If you are bound and determined to go this year, go to Rutgers and keep your debt around 50k or less. That would keep your monthly payment at a more doable $600/month.
sweet god i dont like to rag on schools that give out detailed employment information (seriously i respect w&l for doing this) but that is illuminating and not a pretty picture.
look buddy you have a 3.75. i wouldve killed for a 3.75 when applying to LS; youve got the hard part down. retake to 170 and your ops will be really good.
