If you think Catholic is shit, good luck with American. American is the shittiest school I have visited. It's like Community College in the guise of a law school.
Catholic actually beat American in full-time bar-license-required job placements for the class of 2011. Of course, there was only an 8% difference between the two, and both were under 50%.
I've never heard anything about 'fudged' numbers. That is, over and above the fact that all law schools were reporting super high numbers prior to 2011 when they didn't have to break out how many of their own students they were hiring on as 'fellows' to count them as employed. The 2011 stats are actually pretty solidly reported and contain really good break outs of what you could expect in the worst hiring year in decades.
