Always?

No. There are other factors one should consider.

Not if the better school is not T14 and is not in a region you want to practice in.

No, I think you need a rosetta stone to understand a lot of the employment numbers. Also, I am not aware of any school that has 100% reporting on employment numbers.

Employment prospects, region you want to practice in, and cost are the most important factors

I agree with this, and I would add that quality of life factors during school should be given some consideration, although it would be fairly low on the list.

I would look at employment # trends also as opposed to a single year of statistics

Agree with the board here. Debt and employment prospects are the most important factors (and I'm including location in employment prospects, since it's a factor), but they're not the only parts of the equation. Sounds like you've got the basic idea though.
