Tag.

Also the OP should be 2015 (not 2014) stats and their difference from the 2016 stats.

Edit: Drexel 9.5%

FWIW, based on convos I've had, schools send their data to the ABA who then puts it through some sort of verification, and schools are only allowed to release after the ABA approves it. So if you're upset that your top choice hasn't released their data yet, just know that they probably have nothing to do with it.

I'm curious how the improved market vs. improved outcomes plays out. Should be revealing about the market trends, and Duke's reveal is certainly encouraging in that sense.

The rumor that WUSTL is up to 40+% (I've seen 44% stated) or something is circulating. Apparently they bragged about it at their ASW.

Honestly, if any law school deserves to be rewarded for its admissions policies, it's WUSTL.
