It's a fine school for south jersey/Philly and they really don't have to resort to funny tactics or anything. I blame Chris Christie for fucking up a lot of the school's goodwill among applicants with all the shitty-ass merger talk.
I also really hate to see this because the c/o 2013 is filled with some of the most awesome people I've ever met and the faculty is phenomenal. Career services is *significantly* better than people give it credit for (assuming you go to the right people, but that's the same everywhere). It all just gives me a giant sad .
Please define "fine school for south jersey/Philly" I don't see how they can possibly justify their tuition. It doesn't seem like a "fine" school at all to me. It seems like a desperate school looking to continue getting rich off student loan money. The Dean doesn't even know how much debt students have. He sure has hell doesn't know what the employment outlook is for those kids who are definitely NOT getting a bargain.
I don't know how you can support them except that they are"nice." They might be pleasant on the service but they are not looking to "nice" when it comes to their students and those students' debt and employment.
ETA: I know I sound harsh but I don't mean to be rude to you. I would honestly like to know how you feel this school with its cost and employment rates is a fine school.
