I don't think it's a bad practice at all. I do believe there should be some distinction between those jobs that are termed/temporary, P/T, F/T, or other, and I think the jobs need to be categorized in a way that allows only some to count for employment ratings that feed the rankings.

I'm fine with schools doing this because it is better than just telling unemployed students to take a hike, but they shouldn't be counted as employed for the purposes of data reporting.

Agreed.

In related news, a ton of employment data was recently released by UMichigan (via Above the Law).

The bottom of the Michigan website lists some of the more interesting career paths the graduates have chosen (in nonlegal employment). They include sheep farming and professional poker.

But, yeah, this topic might be better for the admissions forum.

"Next year, those graduates won't count as employed [by U.S. News]. See who drops those programs then," Sylvester said.



So, how about all of us trying to get in, or currently in, law school stop advocating that these jobs shouldn't count???? 'Cause, you know, a lot of these programs sound cool and legit...and I want a job after school...
