160k median salary type assertions?
Doyle, you have seen the numbers. The school works with the best data available to calculate the median, and honestly explains the nature of said data (ie: 87% reporting.) Unless the school were to borrow some Death Eaters and put all new graduates under the Imperius curse, forcing them to reveal their starting salaries, there would be no way to get a "better" median.
The various tricks used to cook the books in admissions offices are very well known, from disqualifying certain data, losing addresses, or only including certain groups in the surveys. Why would Fordham suddenly be the great exception, the hard-working admissions office that inevitably produces the same dismal results as its dishonest colleagues? Why would NALP and NLJ be able to collect such accurate data about the whole market, but Fordham only be able to collect wildly skewed data about its own graduates?
There's reason to doubt this story. Fordham is no more honest than its lying peers.
