More Employment Stats Differences

If the new U.S. News approach to employment statistics had been used for last Spring's ranking, a number of schools outside the top ranks would have also had rather big differences between the scores they reported then and what they would have to report under the new method:

Pepperdine (97.2 to 84.1)         -13%
Dist.of Col. (92.9 to 80.1)        -12.8%
Santa Clara (95.5 to 87.0)        -8.5%
Vermont (98.0 to 90.5)            - 7.5%   
Buffalo (97.8 to 90.8)              -7.0% 
Regent (89.0 to 82.1)             - 6.9% 
Richmond (96.8 to 90.1)         -  6.7% 
St. Johns (96.5 to 89.9)          - 6.6
UC Davis (93.3 to 86.9)          - 6.4% 
UC Hastings (96.3 to 90.0)      - 6.3% 
Drake (98.4 to 92.4)               -  6% 
Chicago-Kent (93.2 to 87.3)                   - 5.9% 
Iowa (98.6 to 92.9)                - 5.7% 
Brooklyn (98.3 to 92.7)           - 5.6%
Hawaii (91.8 to 86.4)             - 5.4%
(Thanks to a colleague for supplying these figures.)
