:?: BigZuck was [probably half-]joking, but how will nabbing a job at OCI with a 100% offer rate prevent you from getting Latham'd/stealth'd in a recession?

NO PREFTIGE 4 UCHI!

But yeah, clerking including state and local is 19.1%. Numbers for clerkships look to be the highest they've been in a while.

Exactly, if the economics dictate it, every firm will let you go if they need to preserve that PPP. I agree that this is definitely the best year since the crash and it is possible for another cravath raise, but I am also holding off on buying a house because I am paranoid that we will end up in a recession by the end of the year.

Didn't we agree earlier that physics dictates that there be two raises prior to any recession? I'm already spending as if the second raise has hit.

WOW. Best numbers from a non traditional T14 school in the past 8-9 years?

It will be super embarrassing when UT doesn't match.

Don't worry, the TLS UT posters are doing their part to prepare everyone for the sub 50% number that is inevitably coming.

I imagine a lot of previous classes are feeling salty right now.

One would think the market would continue trending in a positive direction for a little bit. Even if things stagnate, the graduating classes for the next few years will be significantly smaller than in previous years, which can only help the situation.

I doubt many people from the classes 2010-2012 (the worst post-recession) are looking at the statistics this year. But yeah, does suck for them because their GPA/LSAT scores were higher too and had to deal with bigger classes and smaller Big Law SA classes.

Yeah for sure. It's crazy how much of this comes down to sheer luck/timing.
