US News - Employed at Graduation Stats
US News has been the only entity to traditionally seek and report the figures for employment at graduation. These numbers are subject to an incredible degree of volatility, making them an extremely unreliable predictor of employment at 9 months. In fact, some schools choose not to report this figure at all because it can be so misleading. Nonetheless, in the interest of full disclosure, a chart showing employment rates at graduation and 9 months for the past 5 years can be found below.
US News Employment Numbers at Graduation and 9 Months
|US News at 9 Months||132||78.57%||131||77.98%||131||81.88%||137||83.54%||148||92.50%|
|US News at Graduation||73||43.4%||78||46.42%||75||46.87%||95||57.92%||100||62.50%|
These figures employ the "new" US News methodology, which treats those seeking a graduate degree or those who have chosen not to seek employment as being unemployed.
