went to the ASD today at USD (met some v. cool people)
employment stats are coming in at 92% employed at graduation for 2009 (no breakdown on the type of work except 4% in grad programs)
umm, the talked about the weather a lot, and I mean it was like their #1 selling point it seemed.
Professors seem really awesome, tbh. Good community feel from the students and the profs, everyone was pretty engaging.
Career services seems really gung-ho. The lady in charge of Career services is really impressive. NU grad, Jones Day associate and recruiter - very cool lady.
If there was something that really impressed me, it would have to be the sense of community. It also felt like students are really well supported. I heard more than once about academic support being really excellent and career services has adjusted to the current market (trying to reach USD grads into other markets, like a LA hiring program)
Scholarships are kind of in a hold pattern right now, waiting for deposits. They do plan on sending out more. Also, if you do well your first year you can get full tuition for second and third year (like if you end up in the top 10% or so and keep it up). If you end up falling out of the top 10% your scholarship goes back to whatever scholarship bracket you fall in to.
While at the end of the day I was able to decide that USD prolly isn't going to be my school of choice, I think it's a terrific institution and one that will serve you well in San Diego and So Cal, in general.
