Question regarding the NLJ 2009 Stats

Postby Kobe_Teeth » Thu Mar 04, 2010 12:21 am

This class was doing OCI's before all financial hell broke loose. This is said to explain surprisingly good showings from schools such as Yeshiva, Brooklyn and Loyola-Chi. However, the stats do reflect the financial hell breaking loose with the best T-14 schools only placing around 55% as opposed to their regular 65? 75%? (not sure what it usually is)

Can someone explain why the recession is reflected among the T-14 and not the surprisingly good showings of some T2's? I'm T2 bound and curious.

Essentially, what I am asking, why is the recession reflected in the stats of some schools and not others? Do we not know?

They OCI'd during 2007 in the good times. Then in fall of 2008 many they were not offered full time jobs because of the crash. NYC was hit hardest, followed by Chicago, Boston then California. DC wasn't hit very bad at all.

However the no offers indiscriminately hit law schools. HLS students got no offerers at the same rate Cardozo grads did.

So Columbia goes from 70% to 55%. Basically 22% of their students who got SA's were no offered. If Cardozo grads were no offered at the same rate they would have dropped from 25% to 20%.

Also I'd guess that the very prestigious firms got a lot of business from the big banks, and got hit harder than smaller firms who never had business before. But that is speculation.
