I think clerkships often get double-counted where the attorney has a clerkship and a standing post-clerkship offer. For example, look at Yale. They have an employment score of 82%. But if you add their clerkships, biglaw, public service, and school funded, which is not even all of the sectors their graduates will be going into, those numbers add up to 88%. Maybe I'm misreading it though.
School-funded is not a separate category. It's almost exclusively PI.
Yeah, I wasn't sure if that might be an issue (PI overlap) or if maybe some school funded didn't count towards the JD required/advantage score. Either way I looked for information on the scoring of clerkships on the site and didn't find anything definitive either way.
Clerkships aren't double counted with anything. All grads are put into only one of the employment categories in the information that is reported to the ABA 9 months out. Some school-funded are ST/PT/non-BPR, but if you're getting this from LST, then that's the difference between the "School-funded rate" listing and the % that is indicated with the red asterisk.
