Class of 2014 Employment Stats (Updated LST Score Reports)

Postby jenesaislaw » Wed Apr 29, 2015 11:29 am

Up on ABA: http://employmentsummary.abaquestionnaire.org/
Up on LST: http://www.LSTScoreReports.com

Notes
* ABA data currently missing Belmont and Lincoln Memorial -- the provisionally approved schools. ABA aware and updating soon. When ABA updates, LST will update. We're waiting on them instead of manually entering the data for the school
* We're going to split Widener into two profiles now that they're officially split up -- this will not be taken care of for a few days though
* These data are @10 months instead of @9 months after graduation (March 15 vs Feb 15). The impact is unknown now.
* Still working through some things on LST, but if you run into any issues, post about them here. I'm probably aware, but may not be, so better safe than sorry.

Analysis
* Full analysis coming in the next few hours, but here are some quick takes
* Total employment in LT, FT bar-required jobs is down/flat, but the rates improved because there are fewer graduates
* Location matters just as much as ever. Except for a few schools, go to one that is near where you want to work.
* Biglaw becoming more concentrated -- probably explained by NY market, but tough to tell from the current dataset. Working on another potential dataset.

Just added Belmont and Lincoln. Some issues with the cost page for Lincoln, but will fix that soonish. These schools (and Irvine) have trends page issues too.

Wonderful, thanks! Perpetually shocked at the number of applicants I know/have met at ASWs who don't know about this...

Yeesh, my school went from 54.xx% to 56.xx% (and most of my friends who graduated last year, with one exception, have jobs).

Guess I should consider myself lucky with a FTLT job prior to graduation.

Why do you guys consider school funded jobs to be Full Time Long term legal jobs?

Yep. And we're pushing schools to distinguish among these jobs in a standardized fashion. Hope to have something to announce in the next two weeks.

They are long-term as classified by ABA.

I haven't followed through with my national analysis, but I will this week. This promise will give me some accountability :lol:
