Anyone have non-B.S. employment stats?

Postby lawskyandhutch » Mon Dec 20, 2010 2:56 am

E.g. What fraction of students at various schools found jobs in recent years and what was the salary distribution? I'm mostly interested in the top 20.

Thanks.

T-14 and T-30. Not really sure there is such a thing as T20, as the schools bounce around in the rankings between T15 and T-30.

Thanks. Are there stats about people who got hired elsewhere (other than at those 250 firms)? E.g. Public sector.
Those statistics make, say, Yale not look so good, but I imagine plenty of its students went to places other than big law firms.

Also, does anyone have realistic salary info?

At the very least, one should add the school's clerkship data to the numbers to get a better sense of how the schools are doing. It helps correct for HYS's strength in placing clerks:

Thanks. Does any have some distribution of salaries? E.g. half of students at X university make $120,000 or above, 30% make between 80k and 120k and 20% make under 80k.

Unfortunately this data is for class of 2008, so assume things are worse everywhere, but this site does the best job breaking down by percentiles and such: --LinkRemoved--
