If the median for a school like Vandy or WUSTL is 100,000+, then that means at least half their students make 100,000+.
Think of it this way:
Let's assume Vanderbilt/WUSTL place 70% into law firms.
Let's assume that US News data has both of those schools median private salary at $100,000.
That would mean that roughly 35% of their classes had jobs of $100,000+.

TLS and Vandy have their median private salary listed as $145,000...
I dont recall WUSTL's median, but according to data from their website. The upper quarter is $160,000...of course this pre-recession data.
Anyway, I'm kind of over with 0Ls' hypothetical unless there is real data presented.
