Class of 2009 Employment at Graduation by Geography
It sucks that the 40% of Vandy's class that work in the Northeast and West have no access to large legal markets.
This geographical distribution of graduates is very similar to BU/ND. This doesn't help the idea that T17 is "considerably" better than BU/ND, etc. They seem to have the same mobility, same firm prospects. I concede that clerking is easier out of Vand/UT, but they also have less competition in their area. BU/BC gets trounced by Harvard/Yale/Cornell, etc. because clerking in the MA/NY region is ridiculously competitive.
