This 55.5% data is also displayed on LST once you actually click on the "Jobs Data" tab, so I think this was obviously just a simple error on their part.


University of San Diego's is wrong too. It says 51.9% on LST but I calculated it myself and it comes out to be 53.1%.

You guys aren't subtracting out LT, FT solos. The numbers are all correct.

I'm curious to see how this plays out w/r/t when/where the alarm bells will start ringing.

No one's claimed it yet, so I'll work on my home state (Virginia) tomorrow. I'll start with VA's two most infamous TTTT's. (You know which ones I'm talking about...)

I was thinking of Liberty and Regent, but I suppose Appalachian is just as infamous... at least to those who are aware it exists. (I've lived in VA for 25 years and hadn't heard of it until browsing TLS. Oops!)

I would have never heard of Appalachian if I didn't go to school with a girl from Grundy but you're right about Regent too

I went to a Christian undergrad, so the prelaw advisor had a Regent adcomm come in to talk about law school. It was lulzy :lol:

Did the adcomm talk about how great Regent's moot court is? :D

I hadn't actually looked at their wiki article until now. Oy vey, this layout of this thing is atrocious. The law school doesn't have its own page, but the majority of the Regent University article seems to be about the law school. (And even so, the stats don't have much substance.) I don't know where I'll stick the employment stats, but I will find a way.

Indeed. The gf's out of town, so why not learn some stuff on the old online encyclopedia while a Simpsons marathon plays in the background? :lol: BTW, Alabama's done. I'm on a roll so I'm going to jump on Georgia. I will say, University of Alabama is a pretty impressive regional school. Much cheaper than most, 70% employment score, 22% Biglaw/clerkship. Not bad.

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Objection: Why aren't we including the cost of attendance?

If we're going to post information useful to future students like employment figures, we should also let future students know what the non-discounted, fully debt-financed cost of attendance are, and what the minimum 10-year monthly payment would be.
