Let's face it, CE2JD, you have a history of snobbery towards lower ranked schools (which is hilarious when you got so defensive about your UG institution.).
I have my .02 cents to add here but first, Mr. CE2JD. He is indeed very hard on the lower ranked schools, but I feel his heart is in the right place and he is sincere. Also, he has a pretty good sense of humor, and I've always looked fondly on that as a trait for anyone. Life’s too short to take everything so seriously, and CE2JD gets it. (No, this is not a paid endorsement, but certainly he can feel free to remember me when he's some big shot in a patent law office)
Now, to the point at hand. My suggestion is for anyone, for any school, to make sure when you go to visit your school of interest, you talk to as many 2L, and 3L students as possible. They will have a good idea for recent employment trends due to the likelihood of contact with former students and their own internship experiences. Next, see if you can contact any alumni yourself and get their opinions as well. If you feel comfortable with the outcome, then by all means give it due consideration. Everyone is concerned about employment and debt after school. REMEMBER, you cannot discharge student loan debt through bankruptcy. It stays with you for life, or as soon as you can pay it off. This is a HUGE decision and you will do yourself a HUGE disfavor if you go into it with blinders on.
I wish you good luck and hope the very best for you and everyone. As always, good times.
