You just answered your own question. Because we can't distinguish between good and bad PI.
Why not apply a discount rate to the PI number? After all, many people consciously choose the PI route. If you consider LRAP at good schools, PI is often not a bad outcome. I understand that on the scale of all law schools it's hard to compare, because the quality of LRAP and the quality of PI gigs varies from school to school. But the T14s are perhaps similar enough that some sort of standard measure could be applied? Completely discounting PI just seems a bit extreme, especially considering that it's a whole segment of the legal profession. Consider also that your awesome bar charts now allow people to appreciate the spectrum in the types of jobs obtained, rather than just rely on a single "employment" rate or number. So people would still be able to factor in or out whatever categories they were most interested in, or trusted more.
