Methodology: Data for the Go-To Law Schools special report is provided by law firms surveyed for The National Law Journal's NLJ 250, our annual survey of the nation's 250 largest law firms. We also queried the law schools for hiring data. Ranks were determined by the percentage of 2010 graduates who took jobs as first-year associates at NLJ 250 law firms. We determined the percentage by using the 2010 juris doctor graduating class size provided by each school. The ranking does not reflect law school graduates who took jobs as judicial clerks after graduation.


According to LST, 11% of UGA grads go into Article III clerkships. Compare this to GSU's 0%.

Let me rephrase why if UGA is so much better than GSU does GSU rank higher in NLJ placements? I understand the AIII but there are another 79% of the UGA class left after the AIII and NLJ hires.... I mean I thought they are on a whole other level...

Also why do UGA grads/students always bash Emory when Emory has over double the biglaw placement UGA has?

GSU ranks higher in NLJ placement because 11% of UGA grads, who would most likely otherwise be qualified for NLJ 250 jobs, are going into Art. III clerkships, which these ranks do not reflect. This isn't a hard concept to understand.

Because Emory is expensive and filled with carpetbaggers.

LST only shows %9.8 and for UGA AIII and in 2008 it shows 3.?% for GSU but that is not what I'm saying I thought GSU was a TTToilette compared to the o so amazing UGA??

Emory's placement is 21.18%, with 5.7% entering Article III clerkships.
UGA's placement is 11.47%, with 11% entering Article III clerkships.

Adding the components to create a rough metric of the % of students that have something you could consider "gainful legal employment", its 26.88% at Emory vs. 22.47% for UGA. That is a 4.41% difference.

Estimated cost of attendance for 1 year at Emory, without scholarship, is $69,396. Estimated cost of attendance for 1 year at UGA, without scholarship, is $51,252 for out-of-state and $34,144 for in-state.

3 years at Emory is $208,188. 3 years at UGA is 119,540 (assuming out-of-state 1L, get it 2L/3L).

UGA students bash Emory students because they're paying $88,648 more for 4.41% better employment prospects.

This is admittedly a rough calculation, but it gives you an idea of what the situation is. HTMFH

My educated guess on this matter is that you were rejected from UGA and are butthurt about it now.

Emory gives out a lot of scholarship money. Many (if not most) pay comparable tuition (or less than) what in-state students pay at UGA.

edit: Also, I believe Emory lists higher COA numbers relative to the actual cost of living than most other law schools do.

You have no idea what/who you are dealing with.

I am not really sure why you have such strange animosity towards UGA.

I also would not say Emory is "most" always comparable to UGA in cost post $$$.

I, for one, am totally jealous that I did not get into an overpriced Hellhole located in one of the absolute worst large cities in America.

Screw you, Emory. And props to you, OP, for your poignant insight into this matter.

Re: why many take UGA over Emory (in case you haven't already seen it): http://emorylawstudent.com/

I had a family friend, who graduated Emory Law, advise me to take UGA over Emory for practice in Georgia. I'm not going to hate on Emory though, there's already too much of that going on in TLS.
