at the DC law school softball tourney last saturday - at least 10 out of 14 3Ls on my GW team were going to vault firms and only maybe 1 or 2 of us are top 15% / on LR.
different people have different experiences and OPs experience sucks but could happen at any T20 school including fordham, even a lower T14.
Anecdotal evidence is anecdotal
Dood's experience may not be the norm, but just to put more anecdotal evidence out there: I'm a GW 2L with friends that range from being in the bottom half of our class to people on law review, and many of us have jobs for summer. Do the below median folks have BigLaw jobs, no, but they have jobs nonetheless. So take from that what you will.
As to GermX...some of the stuff he says is true. The economy is crappy, DC is a tough market, and every other highly-ranked school in the country sends people here. Not every single professor is fabulous. Let's not lie, LRW here pretty much bites. (Who grades sections of 11 or 12 people on a curve? Seriously?)
But to paint a more accurate picture: the vast majority of our professors are awesome; there are students getting BigLaw and BigFed jobs, as well as local government and small/midlaw gigs (though I'm not sure I buy GW's self-provided numbers on how many); and LRW is only worth 2 units each semester, and is curved higher than any other class. So it's not perfect, but it's not awful either.
And, as has been pointed out, everything that has been talked about in this thread is stuff that was talked about before GermX (or I) made our decisions to go here; so it's hard to complain that we've been misled.
