Comments

Question: Does anyone have access to U.S. News' methodology regarding the definition of "employed" used for the "Employed at Nine Months" data that accounts for 20% of the school's ranking?

Specifically, is there any requirement that the former law student be employed in the field of law to be counted as employed or does a job at Burger King also qualify for this important aspect of the ranking?
