Utah Employment

Postby coldshoulder » Sun Mar 18, 2012 1:33 am

This information seems too detailed and open to be true. Am I missing something?

Seems normal and mediocre.

They don't list how many people that salary info is pooled from so it is incredibly unhelpful. At best, 68% of their grads are in full time lawyer jobs (assuming no overlap between JD jobs and PT jobs, which is unlikely) and possibly 55% full time lawyer jobs (assuming complete overlap between JD jobs and PT jobs).

They say at the top that out of 126, 122 responded and gave salary info.

Jag with a six month guarantee raise can be 72k I think. The pay has recently gone up.

Numbers looks good. The JD required is pretty low, but it seems like the state economy is doing alright.

lol I just realized their shit website forces the final column into the links part of the website and makes it hard to read.

122 did not give salary info but they do actually say how many gave info and how many worked PT. 77 reported salary info. Honestly I do not see how this data makes look Utah look better than your average run of the mill low T1 school. Yes they are more transparent but they aren't really any better.

Oh I see. Yeah 77 reported salaries sounds much worse.
