Everyone is struggling ITE, outside of HYS anyway. Bottom-third CCN grads are shitting themselves right now.
Bottom third of CCN were never exactly getting handed biglaw.
Columbia placed 74% V50 and 80% V100 for C/O 2007. Now, in Columbia's class, 82% went into private practice. That means that if you were top 90% you got a V50 firm, and people in the bottom 10% had to settle for V100.
I assume you're looking at the data from law firm addict. While it might be right, it's fairly suspicious, especially in so much as it doesn't jive at all with c/o 2005 data from here: http://pdfserver.amlaw.com/nlj/20080414 ... trends.pdf
This is the final C/O 2007 data: http://www.law.com/img/nlj/charts/20080 ... chools.jpg
The lawfirmaddict data is summer hiring. People with options can do a 2L SA to make some money (pay down debt) and go do something else after graduation. It's a better measure of who "can" get biglaw, because it gets rid of a lot of self-selection.
