GMTA — Ditto to your post...I’d call it the everyday pickpocketing of students by robbing them of time and money while returning dubious value for future job prospects. It takes wise and loving parents to guide their children around these unmarked dangers in the same way they taught them not to run out in the streets when playing as youngsters.
And, ahem, useless degrees?
I'm mixed about the rates reported at some of the schools. I'm pretty sure the Feds have cracked down on the non-reporting of violent crimes (spurred by failures of a school in MN, iirc), but only 54 property crimes at Howard? Given their demo, location, etc., I'd be shocked if this wasn't extremely under-reported.
Likewise, I'm surprised that Boston College was high on the list. I would have expected Boston U, or Northeastern to rank above them solely by being closer to the "inner city neighborhoods" of Boston.
