If there are thousands of BC/BU etc grads looking for work, how long will it make sense to hire a CLS/HLS/NYU grad at 160K? Eventually firms/clients will stop paying for the name and just go after the cheapest candidate with satisfactory work.
Well, it's already affected the t14 and t6. As to your point that firms will say "Why pay this H grad X when I can pay a GW grad .5x?" I don't see it happening. People are always going to pay for quality (or maybe perceived quality) for things that have a lot of money riding on them.
