I looked closely at UNC's employment stats before choosing a law school, and this is definitely untrue. I don't have the numbers in front of me, but the proportion making 100k or more is somewhere between 13-20% of the class, and I think its at most 14/15%.
I think this is one of those "median salary over 100K 40% of people in private practice reporting" situations. Don't attend a school that does this.
