This makes sense of course.
I would just note that in addition to the employment score the wiki pages notes that Thomas Jefferson got a perfect score for transparency from LST and that the school won an award for successfully implementing a program for solo practioners. It also said that the school has many students who are immigrants or 1st generation students.
Anyway I'm not going to do battling google results. I'm just suggesting that dismissing the students as idiots or whatever they've been called here doesn't accurately reflect the information .
I'm also suggesting that just reading posts here from more sophisticated and informed students shows a general lack of realistically facing the amount owed at graduation. Most people post their scholarships and not how much they will owe, for example. I can't recall ever seeing anyone overestimate their debt. In other words, my belief is that most students ignore or minimize the cost and the impact of the debt they take on for school. It not just Whittier students.
Here's a list of reasons why people go to TTT's and TTTT's
1)good local reputation that outweighs whatever they read online
2)students can go to better schools but are getting the best deals at TTTT's
3)students want to become a lawyer and will attend the only program they can attend, god damm the consequence
4)want to be solo practitioners(ignoring how difficult this is in reality) and thus don't care about the employment stats
5)I think it's fair to say it's more likely for 0L's to access the fake employment stats and propaganda materials a school sends them in the mail than find the ABA 509's/Employment reports. Also ABA employment reports and 509's just give raw numbers not percentages which makes it more difficult for students to put it in context(I just put it in Excel but this takes time).
6)many people will get nothing but positive feedback from their family, friends and community and simply don't know the people qualified to give them advice.
7)if a student went into alot of UG debt and doesn't believe they will ever pay this off anyway they might doubledown with another degree. Some just don't understand what debt is.
you'd be suprised how many people have no idea how interest works. Paying back 200k in debt over time that doesn't grow is a very different thing than paying 200k in debt with 6% interest and if interest worked the way they thought it did, a lot of insane decisions would actually make sense somewhat.
