$50,462? I Call Bullsh*t!

My Challenge Flag

Mark Twain said there are three kinds of lies: “liesdamned lies, and statistics.”

I’m not sure into which category the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) starting salary statistics for Spring 2011 college graduates will fall, but I am increasingly convinced, based on a flurry of emails I just received, that they rest squarely in one of those ignominious baskets. (Please see previous item.)

I therefore officially challenge NACE to release the methodology used in determining that the   Rijswijkaverage salary offer to all Class of 2011 graduates” is can you buy neurontin over the counter Udon Thani $50,462. I do not believe that figure, and I ask that NACE back it up. I will formally apologize if I am proved wrong.

If you are dubious about NACE’s starting-salary figure, please re-tweet or “like” this post. Lies, damned lies, and statistics need to be challenged.
