You do realize that LST's number crunching uses US News source data, right? So the LST analysis really says nothing directly about the source data, which is almost certainly suspect for all but the very top schools. Certainly so for Davis (at least re: JD required employment), a school claiming its 9 month employment (95.8%) to be above Stanford's (95.6%) for '09 grads, for example. I'll now add the obligatory comment here that Davis is a great school, but I do mean it. It's also in a cool college town, if you like that. But don't go there for the employment claims they make to US News. If anything, LST's analysis further questions Davis' employment claims for '09 grads considering the relatively low percentage of all Davis grads having a known salary range, fwiw (39.5% v. Stanford's 83.7%).
