4 spots, verryyy nice. Would've been nice to see a first digit in the 20s but hey, whatever! There's always next year...
#30 is great! I am not a big rankings person but I am very happy with that.
80% of graduates employed at graduation is pretty good given the market and compared to similar ranked and regional schools (Emory - 65%, Seattle - 57%, Colorado - 69%, Oregon - 56%).
If that 80% number is that they're employed in the legal profession then yeah that's good. But like, compared to UCD, which has a 96-98% employment @ graduation, it doesn't look so hot! ALTHOUGH it is also well known that UCD tends to (like most law schools) inflate their numbers by adding non-legal and/or non-full time legal work in their employment statistics.
That of course has the effect of drastically increasing their rank, which is possibly one reason why UW is only rank #30 (they have integrity and don't inflate their #'s?)
I dunno. I wish there was more transparency with this crap. It's such a gamble.
