What about the other 28.8% (1-.552-.264)? What are they up to? Employed in something else, like McDonald's, or not even that and are simply unemployed?
No, McDonald's jobs are already included. The underemployment number includes all non-professional jobs, all short-term jobs, all part-time jobs, people pursuing advanced degrees, and those who are unemployed - seeking.
As for the people who are not underemployed and not employed in a full-time, long-term legal job, the percentage is actually 18.4% not 28.8%. I actually got really nervous when I couldn't get them adding up to 28.8%...and then I double-checked your math. Phew...ha!
So the other 18.4%:
unemployed - not seeking (2.3%); unemployed - deferred start date (.25%); unknown employment status (3.3%); unknown job type (but only the full-time, long-term variety -- the other unknown job types are in the underemployment figure) (.14%); full-time, long-term JD Advantage jobs (8.1%); full-time, long-term Professional jobs (3.9%).
The University of Alabama School of Law
164 Total Graduates
128 full time, long term bar passage req'd (78%)
16 full time, long term JD advantage (10%)
10 unemployed/Employment Unknown/Employed NonProfessional (6%)

Pretty damn good. Good for 14th best in the country, actually. Some surprising company at the top of the list. LSU is up there (#12). GW (#11). St Mary's (#13).

This is worse than I thought it would be.
