Because when T13 schools are placing 90 or 95% of their classes into lawyer jobs (and when the vast majority of FSU students take the bar), it tends to refute the idea that there is a large percentage of people who never wanted to become lawyers in the first place.
The friend I'm speaking of actually took the FL bar, passed, and now works in Cali in-house for a firm that does not require bar passage. Hence, he is very misleadingly included in the statistic rad lulz provided, as are others who have taken on other ventures.
I don't really know how many of these "great non-law jobs" are -- or are not -- out there. I just know he landed a sick gig in house. And I have friends at FSU who do not want to become lawyers (or so they say). Personally, I'm open to not becoming a lawyer if I find a good look elsewhere in the coming year. Not everyone is set on being a lawyer.
But we are beginning to derail the topic; this isn't my thread and, even if it was, I'm not trying to take this argumentative avenue.
Just was dropping my two cents for OP. When I was a 0L asking about a particular school/market, I liked to hear first hand anecdotes from the people who have experience with that school/market.
