Pretty sure they are trying to keep it around the 368 we had this year.

Excellent. I hope so. Smaller sections I presume

CLS has a much bigger transfer class. 469 vs 482 NYU graduates via LST for 2012, I think the 13 students can be equated by the PI bias.


CLS moving forward with its smaller class size could absolutely dominate NLJ+a3+v5 if they leave or reduce their transfer class size though.

NYU also dropped its class size down from 476 to 450 so if they don't increase their transfers, the discrepancy moving forward will still only be 456 vs 426 CLS

theres a lot of latent NYU hate on this board. I think its because they aren't preftigious enough

Studies have been done already covering Biglaw placement by the top law schools.

Not factoring in AIII clerkships in those numbers makes them really suspect. LST is just fine.

As a corollary to Noodley's on point statement, TLS is well aware of NLJ data; we are also aware that placement numbers and placement power for a school are not the same. The fact that Yale ranks below Penn, Columbia and Georgetown on NLJ does not point to YLS being a worse school for getting a high paying job.

So thanks but no thanks.
