Giving lots of money + solid, growing, stable indy economy = good news for iu


I don't get the IUB placement. There not even cited on the NLJ Top 250 list. Honestly though, I'm more interested in NALP data than rankings. 60 offices just doesn't sound too impressive to me.

Why are the employment statistics for class of 2008? Isn't it supposed to be 2009? Or is that a typo?

(Late warning: if you're not from Michigan, or considering one of these schools, you will not give a crap about this reply.)


My thoughts exactly. Within the state, my sense was always that Wayne was considered to be the better of the two schools. Regardless, some nice bumps for two big Michigan schools makes me very happy.

This information is of the utmost importance because firms look at this exact measurement when deciding where to OCI.
