I don't know USNWR methodologies (and can't click the link on their page for it because it is broken right now) but does UMinn/UWash/ASU really place better than BU/BC/Fordham? What other factors could possibly be more important than employment placement? My feeble mind is confused....
Simple ASU might have given out a greater percentage of post graduate "fellowships," therefore their employments are better according to USNEWS, its a joke
Their employed after 9 months percentage is much higher than BU, BC, Fordham, etc. in the USNWR data.
Employment numbers mean nothing. GW/Emory are at 60% at graduation, and they're 20 and 24. US News measures US News success, not employment prospects.
I'm talking about the data they used to compute these... I am not attesting to their veracity or integrity.

At least they are being honest, right?
