School decision - What is behind Haas Employment data?  [#permalink]

Hi everyone,

I am moving to the school decision moment with other round 1 applicants. It is tougher than I thought!

At this point, one thing that worries me a little about Haas is the following statistic:

Full-time graduates employed at graduation: 76%
Full-time graduates employed three months after graduation: 91%
(the denominator is "students known to be seeking jobs")

It is the lowest among the schools I applied to. I know it would be necessary to perform a statistical test to find out whether this difference is significant, but it seems to be. Ross' for example is 87,5%/96%.

Does anyone have a clue on how to read this? Is it something to worry about?

Thank you!

I just dug up some quick data, but the discrepancy doesn't seem to be isolated to Haas. For example, Stanford is 81/95 and UCLA is 76/90. Just speculating, but it may have something to do with being in California and job placement out west versus midwest/northeast.

And as to whether it's something to worry about, those numbers may be the lowest of the schools to which you've applied, but they aren't exactly "low."
