Based on an early consensus, I would say that OCI went very well at NU.
Approximately 60% of my 60 person section has received offers from NLJ250 firms (almost entirely V100), with ~27% having received offers/accepted from V20s. Of the remaining 40%, half are either JD/MBAs or PI folks who did not particpate in OCI. I feel that the same could be said across sections.
Of those having accepted offers, ~45% did so with firms in Chicago, ~20% in NYC, ~10% in California, and the remaining ~25% were scattered across the country.
If the OCI numbers are true, that's around Columbia numbers
I don't think it's so shocking, largely because it's an apples to oranges comparison. First of all, you're talking about '09 data versus '10 data. Second, chadwick's account obviously doesn't include transfers.
Third, NU's class and CLS's class are very different. Over 10% of the class is JD-MBAs, and about 15% is engineering/science majors. Historically only half the JD-MBAs took legal jobs at graduation, and that number is probably even lower ITE. The engineering/science majors are marketable for IP jobs and largely compete for different SA slots than everyone else. About 60% of the class has 3+ years of WE, and a lot have connections to law firms either as paralegals, or through industry organizations, etc.
