Employment rates were down across the board for the recent year according to US News stats. Columbia, Michigan & Duke were all below 80% at graduation, while Yale & UCLA were below 75% at graduation. I understand that for many schools this was actually a function of a very good MBA job market. More people were willing to graduate without jobs in hand so that they could pursue the riches of PE/VC/HF firms that do not recruit on a regular schedule and tend to hire people as needed.
That is a relief to hear. I saw the emplyment stats and started to worry. Thanks, P for the informed input.
