Does AU have ANY placement in BigLaw? If so, how small?

Virtually nil. The last school on the list of schools that send the most grads to the NLJ250, which is something less than biglaw, sends 13 grads to the 250. So you can safely conclude that less than 13 people per class at WCL get biglaw.

I mean, they will send SOME kids to biglaw but they have to be at the very top, know someone, or be amazing interviewers...they may need all of that combined. However, it is possible just not likely

Cool. I interned with an AU grad who started somewhere as an associate making $125k. Wish I knew his rank, he was a MAJOR deutcher.

How important do you think interview skills are? If someone graduated in the middle of the pack at AU but had great interview skills, would it matter?

AU is a glorified Cooley. Rips kids off but people have at least heard of it. The one AU grad I know was a Dartmouth UG ---) AU Law. He is 3 years out, has a 'general practice' in MAryland where he does DUI work. He is smashed with debt and is basically fucked forever.
