In 2009 probably around 60% of Emory's class. For Fordham it's difficult to say but it looks like around 50%. Things are worse now.
93% of Emory's 2009 class reported their salary 9 months out. Of that 93%, 69.10% are in law firms. That is 64.263% of Emory's total class. 72.96% of that 64.263% are working at firms that have a salary range of 70k-170k. That comes out to 46.88% of the TOTAL class of 2009 making 70k+ at firms. Now, keep in mind that a few of those in the 1-25 sized firms are making over 60k, as seen by the top salary of 100k at firms staffed with 2-10 attorneys with a 55k average and a range up to 90k at firms the size of 11-25 with average of 60k. Obviously averages are misleading but should not be entirely discounted. Now don't forget about those who are going public interest. That comprised 3.93% of that 93% (3.65 of total class) and had a range of 42k-65k. Given how interesting those jobs are, Emory LRAP and the federal loan forgiveness program, I think those should be included in the life is not over category. You got another 5.06% of that 93% (4.7% total class) in Govt. work and 8.43% of that 93% (7.84% of total class) in clerkships, 9.55% of that 93% (8.81% of total class) who were mostly JD/MBA's working in business, and you see that TLS's Mayan forcast about Emory is overrated.
