That'd be cool to know what the % stood for or is it just too late for me to comprehend graphs?

Percentage of students employed at one of the 250 largest law firms. Basically, % of students that were hired by BigLaw during a given year. A bit deceiving since there are a good numbers of firms that pay BL $, but are either boutiques or simply did not crack the 250 list.

Really only 30% of Yale's class going into big law? So that many people are doing clerkships/PI/gov/whatnot instead? Seems weird since H and S are both around 50%

Then you lost your job a year and a half later when the recession hit big law.

Yale is really in a class of its own in terms of ability to place people in clerkships and, especially, having a large percentage of people who want to do very specific things with their degrees. Biglaw is too craven and money-grubbing for them.
