I put down a deposit for BU (even though I am hoping to get off of one of my WLs), but employment data will likely determine whether I actually go to BU next fall or reapply if I don't get off of a WL... it's hard for me to justify paying sticker for a school that is struggling with employing grads, and the mix of the current employment info they have on their site + the ranking drop makes me worry.
seems like a lot of people from the class of 2010 were employed by BU, didn't report salaries, had deferred starting dates, etc.. and I am SURE that more than 57% of the class of 2010 wanted a private sector law firm job.... I know that the whole market is struggling (or especially was in 2010) and that rankings aren't everything, but I can't see a drop in rankings coinciding with an improvement in employment prospects.. maybe I'm being ignorant and judgmental about BU, but the whole thing sketches me out a bit since it is such an expensive/high stakes decision
At the ASW the Dean did state that the 2011 statistics were going to be worse than the prior year; she didn't state in which ways or really elaborate on that point however.
