I guess it's because the undergrad is better regarded, but still. FWIW, though, it probably has better employment prospects than many of its T4 peers bc of its location.
haha YES! This is funny but incredibly true. The red "D" ring has a characteristic all of its own in the city (and actually worldwide...so they claim)
I recently ran into an old middle school friend's mother, who asked what I was doing, and when I told her I was going to Vanderbilt Law her response was "oh that's nice, I hear that's a good school. Are you going to try to transfer to Duquesne if you do well?"
In high school, I got the same reaction when I informed people in my hometown that I would be attending Bryn Mawr/Smith/Mt. Holyoke.
