  1. So you are leading the charge against misleading information and you continue the misinformation. I looked at your data clearinghouse for several schools. Your salary quartile information seemed strange for the amount of students reporting private salaries. perhaps it is just in the labeling.
    Take CUNY, for example, a well known public interest law school. One of the big issues you (and others) raise is the percentage reporting salaries. You report strong salary quartiles, but have to scroll down to see that 6.8 percent of all graduates (9 graduates) are represented by your reported quartiles. Any school reporting on 9 graduates can have a very high salary range.
    Much stronger than burying that at the end of a scroll would be to put it right under the quartile reporting – based on 9 students or 6.8% of the class. Don’t mean to pick on CUNY, but one would expect a low percentage in the private sector as they are a public sector school.

  2. Thanks for the comment.

    The first thing a reader sees on the page is the giant chart with all known salaries. If you hover over each item, it shows the percentage of the class for each category.

    Nevertheless, I like your suggestion and have implemented it. Thanks from all of us at LST.
