So I decided to put the new c/o 09 employment data into charts (similar to the 07 data from law.com).
This uses the data provided from US News, however it weighs down the employment breakdowns to account for anyone unemployed or in an unknown status.
So far I have data compiled for the T80 and the elite tier. All data is 9 months from graduationT15Employment Sector Breakdown

** USC refused to provide part-time data. I extrapolated UCLA's ratios for the purpose of my graphs, however it's likely slightly worse.T50Sectors

**Denver just quit providing part-time/full-time rates after the section of data with the highest full-time rate. So their part-time statistics are a little off. T100SectorsSalariesFull-Time/Part-Time Employment
** Please note that VERY few graduates of the lower tier CA schools actually find full-time legal employment.
U of San Francisco Breakdown
89.8% of Grads known to be employed 58% of which in a JD Required Job
50.5% of those in a JD Required Job are employed full time
.898 x .58 x .505 = .263
So that's 26.3% of the class thats employed full-time as a lawyer 9 months after graduation.
(The FullTime/PartTime graph reflects those employed in other capacities full-time, which is why the graph % is slightly larger - ie accountant, teacher, etc) Elite Tier
Added for quick reference when someone starts asking if it could be worth it to attend a TTT. For the record, Ave Maria
is officially the worst law school in the nation; not Barry, Nova Southeastern, Thomas Jefferson, or any of that other bs.Sector Breakdown
*Nova didn't provide part-time data, so they got Barry's rates.
