They are, but the class of '09 did OCI in 2007, before all hell broke loose. Numbers for NYC schools are depressed because of the large number of no offers which occurred after said breaking loose of hell.

this doesnt explain cardozo's 20.1% rate...i never knew cardozos numbers were this high even in the boom years

I wonder how low these percentages will go when we see the data for the class of '10, '11 and '12. Could we see some of these percentages cut in half? Imagine the highest NLJ250 placement stat being 25%, down from 70% not long ago. Tuition continues to raise while the ability to pay back that tuiton lowers. How sad.

Where is he? I was his apprentice in fine trollcraft (er, I mean school boosting), but I'm not going to do all his trolling for him. :mrgreen: The answer is, pretty mobile, within the south and mid-Atlantic, anyway, and also in New York and DC. Vandy actually publishes full employment lists, unlike 99% of other schools, so you can have a look. The school is very worth your transfer app, IMO.

The Mid-Atlantic includes New York.

There were roughly half the total number of SA offers this year for Class of 2011 when compared to the total number of SA spots for Class of 2009. These numbers are in for a huge drop-off in the next couple years, at all schools. It will be interesting to see which schools take the biggest hit, but my guess is the lower half of Tier 1 gets killed, and the numbers for HYS will not take nearly the hit that every other school will.
