Take for example UConn- only 59% of the last class with data (2015) work as lawyers. That means 41%!!!!!! DO NOT WORK AS LAWYERS (not by their own choice, because why go to law school then). You have a general coin flip chance at ever being a lawyer. So only half the class is working as lawyers, fighting for those 50k jobs. Only the top 5% or so even has a shot at a better outcome. So its not a matter of being at the bottom of the class. Its a matter of luck, curve, and hoping there is ANY legal job.

I was under the impression that it's always best to use the most recent data? 2016 for UConn is out, LST just hasn't updated it. It's 71% employment. Meaning 30% not working as lawyers is definitely sub par and not ideal at all, but to label UConn as a coin flip chance doesn't seem quite right.

A one-time increase isn't necessarily a sign that the school has turned it around, either.

At any rate, the OP appears to have "considered" all the posts here and taken the standard route of ignoring anything negative and following up with questions about the most implausible great outcomes.

I will echo everyone else and say retaking is your best option. However, if you are willing to take the risk, your best option is probably UConn.
