Don't assume that some companies and organizations are eager to hire high-performing URMs?

No. Don't allow that fact to cloud the fact that you could be making a bad decision in attending one of these schools.

URM boost in employment notwithstanding, there just aren't that many jobs. So be careful where you go and how much you debt you take on.

Oh, I'm cognizant of that fact, hence my conundrum.
