People need to understand just because company ABC is the most common employer for your school grads doesn't mean your school is a hot target or whatever for that company.
here are hundred thousands of companies in the US and there are only 7000 graduates at most from your school--that means any company hiring just 1 person from your school is already having more than average number from your school!
When you have so many trying to get into GS, it's really not that difficult to make GS one of the largest employers for your school grads unless your school is just mediocre.
I didn't even read your posts on this thread. In fact, I only read the first couple pages. Funny how you are the one that's overreacting and thought I was talking about Duke.
I was just talking about a GENERAL case. If the numbers are such that no more than 2 go to the same firm, then having 2 in GS already make it the largest employer. Is that not true?
NU "doesn't place this well"? NU's MMSS alone had 4 kids landing internships with GS in 2004/2005 and we are talking about a class of 40 kids.
I said the fact that GS is the largest employer alone doesn't necessarily mean it's a target. I just need to know one more number--how many-- to be convinced it's a target. Just because I raised my doubt doesn't mean I said the claim was false.
So far you haven't even given how many students got the GS position. In a way, when you said it's the largest employer without providing the numbers (like Wharton's stats--70 out of 900)
you gave people the impression that it's not hard to get GS jobs from Michigan
By the way, did you mean Michigan or Ross when you said GS is one of the top-4 employers?
No need to try to paint me as Michigan basher.
