Actually if anything c/o 2013 seems to have done very well for themselves. Many current 2Ls have voiced their opinion that it's back to "Biglaw for everyone" at T-14. (This is almost certainly an exaggeration, but it's so much better than what people were saying for the past two years that I'm absolutely convinced there really was a big change. Many T-14 schools probably have 80% or 85% + doing summer SAs.)

If I thought legal hiring for c/o 2011 and 2012 in any way resembled the new normal, I would not have applied to law school.

The recovery is fragile, though. Who knows where the legal market will be in 2 years...

So... for how long do you all anticipate having a professional career? If you're breaking even after 5, 10 or 15 years, as long as you're then making more money and were anticipating still being in the workforce, it seems (by seems I mean does) like it pays.

How about this - where would we be if banks/lenders were as short-sighted as this thread? Nobody would ever get a mortgage, that's for sure.

I would say that this prob sounds correct. When you take out people who actually choose to do PI and those who just completely underperform in interviews there is an excellent chance of getting biglaw from the T 14. Just have to keep on doing the stuff that got you into the T 14 in the first place, and not doing the stuff that would have stopped you.

And I absolutely do not intend to sound like I think Biglaw is assured at a T-14 or T-6 or even T-3 school. Part of the calculus has to be whether you think you've got what it takes to make a legal career work if for whatever reason you miss out on the Biglaw train. Are you going to have a panic attack or mope around and think your life is over, or are you confident you have the hustle to make it work, even with 200K in debt staring you in the face? (For myself, I decided I come out on the right side of the answer--barely.)

If this is OP I still say UT with a scholly is a better choice. NYC isn't the place for westerners anyway. Unlike Texas, NYC really is a whole nother country.

But, if u still go NYU, good luck to you. U will most likely be fine. Most are, seriously.
