W&M 2012 Employment Numbers

Postby Aroldis105 » Fri Mar 08, 2013 3:31 pm

I was hoping someone with a better eye for these things could help me decipher W&M's newly released employment numbers. It looks like their new Employment Score is around 75% but it obviously hasn't gotten the LST treatment

Gracias.

Here's last year's report for comparison: http://law.wm.edu/careerservices/docume ... le2011.pdf.

Comparison is pretty easy because the class sizes are exactly the same.

A recent grad told me these are one year school funded fellowships with public interest groups. The school pays the grads $12,000.

Fair to say moderate gains in some areas but most major gains inflated by school based employment?

Does the employer pay the grads anything?

I agree with this assessment, but I'm excited to see how well their rank rebounds on Tuesday. The employment-numbers game is lame, but benching yourself is even worse.

109/204. A bit above 50%. Even tack on 5% for PI grads who would have taken the unpaid fellowship anyway to try and break into PI.

Looks like the balance is in job categories paying around 40-60K starting.
