GW Employment Numbers/ Dean Situation

Postby rosey8 » Fri Jul 05, 2013 3:55 pm

I've seen other posts on this subject, but as someone debating transferring to GW in the fall I'm wondering what others think about the employment data from the school. Law School Transparency says that the total employment score is 80.9% -- and that the school funded rate is 22.6%. When I did my own calculations, using the ABA data, for graduates that are in jobs that require bar passage, and is not a job funded by the school, I came up with 59.65%. Now, my math may be off, or I might be looking at the ABA data incorrectly, but just wondering what if others agree that 60% is more of an accurate measure for the employment score. Additionally, can anyone shed light on the Dean ouster, and the implications that may have (other than that the school will be conducting a dean search in the next year). Thanks so much.

I think the employment data speaks for itself. The prospects don't seem to justify giving up any scholly money at your current school.

Go to the GW c/o 2016 thread in the Acceptances forum. A lot of questions will be answered by reading that.
If not, feel free to PM me.

Solos are excluded from the Employment Score.
