At graduation employment rates

Postby grapefruits » Thu Mar 14, 2013 2:08 pm

1. Yale – 90.7% (6)
2. Harvard – 90.9% (5)
2. Stanford – 93.2% (2)
4. Columbia – 93.2% (2)
4. Chicago – 90.6% (7)
6. NYU – 93.1% (4)
7. U. Penn. – 83.6% (8)
7. UVA – 97.3% (1)
9. Berkeley – 72.6% (11)
10. Michigan – 70.7% (12)
11. Duke – 72.9% (10)
12. Northwestern – 77.4% (9)
13. Cornell – 69.7% (13)
14. Georgetown – 63.7% (14)

Thoughts, comments? Pretty large gap between 1 and 14, or 1 and 9 for that matter, or 6 and 9 even.

Initially on seeing this I thought it was a bit rosy, because I was assuming most people who ended up employed by their own law school would not have the job at graduation. If that's true (which I have 0 hard evidence to support), then employment rates for 1-6 really aren't insufferable.

ETA: rank by emp. at grad.

Isn't this just from the c/o 2011 data? Nothing new....

It's from the data released to usnwr for the 2014 rankings.

It is from the most recent USNWR rankings, which are pulling from the 2011 ABA data I think... but I don't know if we've had access to the "at graduation" numbers before. It isn't in the ABA's Employment Summary Report, at least.


ABA does not collect these data; neither does NALP. Schools had to scramble to get accurate numbers. I'd take them with a grain of salt.

But maybe a smaller grain of salt than before. When I was applying to law school every school including TTTs reported 85% employment or higher. These numbers, though not entirely accurate, are definitely much closer to reality.

That UVA number is a giant fucking wart on the notion that these have any relation to reality.
