Let's just say that the other folks on this thread are correct, and the so-called experts from the private recruiting firm are - to put it delicately - misinformed. Our rankings are completely
objective. We get phone calls all the time from people asking us to give them consideration for injury or sickness or whatever... our response is always that the data is the data. We feed data into our ranking system, and the rankings come out the other side.
