(No offense to LST, your services are more than crucial.) Summer Associates at NLJ/market firms don't become staff attys, they become associates. If 60% of your class is getting a large firm offer at OCI, you don't have to worry about those folks winding up as lower paid staff. Whereas Wheeling, WV and Delaware offices will take staff attorneys for large firms, who won't summer.

Is the percentage of people being no offered small enough to be discounted?

Now, I think so. It's at least compensated for by successes via mass-mailing.

No offense taken. Identifying weaknesses in data is how you improve the data.
