Why is the graduate school placement not that good?
Looking at the post graduation surveys conducted by the Johns Hopkins career center, I don't see many graduates attending top ranked schools in the respective major. For example, from 2007-2011 for neuroscience majors, only 5 got into Harvard, 3 into Columbia, and 23 in JHU (but I accredit this to JHU being the native school). For 4 years of graduates and 236 total graduates, I don't find this assuring as I'm planning on majoring in neuro and going onto graduate school.

Any thoughts? One explanation I found is the response rate of surveys is only 60%, but naturally people that do well postgrad would respond right?
