I wouldn't consider this bad press, but reality. People have license to bitch all they want, but at least some people are actually DOING things and trying to open administrative transparency. That said, I don't consider any response helpful except for the overall yes/no employment question.
Props to whoever put this together.
It definitely isn't good press. I appreciate the info, but the numbers paint a pretty dire picture. And I feel like these 3Ls had a good idea of what the employment landscape looked like before they conducted this survey. Hell, even OP rationalizes posting this data as a rebellion against the administration.
Now, I realize a lot of law schools get creative with employment reporting. And I realize schools are facing a bleak hiring market ITE. I think the outrage is justified; but why does it seem to come much more from Emory than other schools? We're not seeing angry ("donuts") e-mails from WUSTL students; we aren't watching as disgruntled GW students tear their school apart on these forums; and, we're not getting Illinois students who are conducting employment surveys and sharing them with the world.
There are certainly incidents here and there (i.e. BC student who wants his money back), but negative press seems to come disproportionately more from Emory.
