guess the 2011 nlj go-to schools rankings! (just for fun)

Postby nosaj123 » Sun Feb 13, 2011 2:24 pm

Last year NLJ published their Go-To Law Schools list in the Feb 22 issue of the national law journal. Assuming they keep to a similar schedule, the new rankings should be coming soon!

ITT: Either list what you expect the new rankings to be or call out which schools you think will be big movers and why they will move

For reference, the rankings from 2010 / % of graduates at NLJ250 firms are listed below:

1. Northwestern/ 56%
2. Columbia / 54%
3. Stanford / 54%
4. Chicago / 53%
5. UVa / 53%
6. Michigan / 51%
7. Penn / 51%
8. NYU / 50%
9. Berkeley / 50%
10. Duke / 50%
11. Harvard / 47.6%
12. Vanderbilt / 47%
13. Georgetown / 43%
14. Cornell / 41%
15. USC / 41%
16. Texas / 36%
17. UCLA
18. Yale
19. BC
20. BU / 35%
21. GW / 31%
22. Fordham
23. Notre Dame
24. Wash U
25. Illinois / 27%
26. Emory
27. Wisconsin
28. SMU
29. William and Mary
30. Yeshiva / 20%

My guess for the 2011 rankings

1. Columbia
2. NYU
3. Penn
4. Stanford
5. Uva
6. Harvard
7. Duke
8. Cornell
9. Northwestern
10. Chicago
11. Michigan
12. Berkeley
13. Texas
14. Vanderbilt
15. Georgetown
16. USC
17. Yale
18. Fordham
19. GW
20. UCLA
21. BC
22. BU
23. Wash U
24. Notre Dame
25. SMU
26. William and Mary
27. Wisconsin
28. Illinois
29. Yeshiva
30. Emory

(Most of the movement is a result of an improved NYC market and a worsening Chi market)

Come back to talk when your school can place >10% of it's class in big law.

Chicago as a market got absolutely fucked by the economy. Schools like Illinois, Notre Dame, and Wustl got decimated. The ND OCI threads from the last couple years were absolute shitshows.

I guess we'll see. I have a hard time believing we'll go from 28.8% to <10% (and I don't think it will be <10% for this year's OCI either), but you could be right. Still a little insulting to be called a third tier school.

Continue.

Not sure about the rest of the schools but Cooley will probably be #2.

I like all the NYU love in this thread, but I don't think NYU will be #1. I just saw our c/o 2010 clerkship numbers, and they are a lot higher than in previous years. Therefore, fewer NYU grads headed immediately to firms this year.
