Two points that may influence this:
1) The score may be based on percentage of employed graduates working in NY. I suspect that Touro graduates are more regionally restricted than their peers at Fordham who may have greater flexibility to work in other markets. Therefore, Fordham's lower "employment score" may be attributable to Fordham graduates not working in NY, but employed elsewhere.
2) Employment prospects out of most law schools are terrible now. Perhaps this chart illustrates the sobering point that even students at a prestigious school like Fordham, face an uphill journey in securing employment upon graduation.
1 doesn't make sense, IMO - what good is the study if it doesn't a) only in NY, and b) doesn't indicate so?
2 I largely agree... My advice is, and has been, if you don't a) get into a t-14 school, and/or b) get a full scholarship, stay away from law school.
