Black Gore has left Vanderbilt MSF?

I just noticed that he's not on their placements stats report of 2018. Wasn't he director of CMC? Now, I see on the report that it's a lady. Can anyone confirm? Did he just leave on vacation or did he leave this MSF program? If so, are the poor placements of 2018 class because of that?

He hasn't left the program. His former centralized position seems to be diffused among a few people now, although I think he was still fully involved last year. The placements for 2018 seemed solid as usual, 93% placement. I think 1 or 2 foreign students didn't secure job prospects after graduation if I'm remembering correctly. The base salary was the highest ever as well.

This year has been really impressive in terms of placement, and last year was 42% IB too.

93% 6 months out. If it was 3 months, I'd be impressed.

Don't want to sound like a shill, but last year 83% had an offer by graduation. That probably didn't take long to go higher based off the small sample size, every person represents around 2% in a class around 55.

I would encourage you to find stats from other MSFs if they even report it, I'd bet only MIT and Princeton would beat, and those programs aren't directly comparable imo.

I know they're very transparent but you have got to admit that they did poorly last year as compared to 2015,16,17. This is the reason they didn't release 3 months out stats.

Fair point. I'm interested to see how this year will turn out, both objectively and relative to last year.
