Each year the Career Center conducts a survey of the graduating class to learn more about the career choices made by Villanova graduates. The survey is conducted from the time of graduation through six months after that date. This survey also assists the Career Center in assessing the initial salary levels offered in various fields and in various cities. This information is helpful to the Career Center staff in counseling and advising students and alumni. The results of the survey provide valuable insight for faculty members, students and parents about the wide range of opportunities currently available to Villanova students.
Data for the graduating class was obtained through a Career Center survey of students who received Bachelor’s degrees between September and May. Each student was contacted at least three times during the six month survey period and information is obtained from employment reports and public record (LinkedIn). The average knowledge rate is 80%. Students with more than one major are counted only in their primary major.
Salary information displayed includes maximum, average, median and minimum salaries. The median is the middle of a distribution: half the scores are above the median and half are below the median. The median is less sensitive to extreme scores. This information is used by students and employers negotiating salary.
Outcomes information by major can be viewed via specific searches and downloadable PDFs.
The Law School Admission Council publishes an Action Report for Villanova University listing: the number of seniors that took the LSAT; the average score; how many applicants and applications; number of seniors receiving acceptances to one or more law schools and how many seniors are registered at a law school.
