    Good to hear that BU grads will get help finding something like an entry level $60K/yr. corporate compliance job with their high priced legal education. No doubt that is what BU advertises as the benefit of a BU education.

    Investigative journalism? The ABA features BU as a star, improving its employment rate. It did, but let‘s look at the numbers - from BU website.In 2013, BU placed 200 graduates in Full time Bar and JD jobs. They funded 17 of them. In 2014, they placed 197 grads in full time Bar and JD jobs and funded 12. If they placed fewer grads, how did the rate soar? Fewer students graduated . 278 graduated in 2013. 246 in 2014. 32 fewer, 11% fewer.At least they are not BC featuring "US News Placement rate" on their website.The ABA is about providing consumers with good information? Transparent?
