Thought y'all might be interested in this. The actual ABA website still seems to be under construction, but if those numbers are accurate, it's interesting, to say the least.

Very interesting article. What are your thoughts on the LaunchPad program it talks about? Seems like it could be somewhat effective if implemented correctly, although that's just my uneducated 0L analysis.

According to TaxProf Blog, the actual ABA website will be unavailable until 7AM tomorrow (don't know time zone).

In related news, a ton of employment data was recently released by UMichigan (via Above the Law).

The bottom of the Michigan website lists some of the more interesting career paths the graduates have chosen (in nonlegal employment). They include sheep farming and professional poker.

ABA website still isn't working, but TaxProf has a spreadsheet with data for all 200 schools. He also posted % breakdowns:

Edit: The full placement summary spreadsheet can be downloaded through the ABA's website at: http://placementsummary.abaquestionnaire.org/Home.aspx

(The link in the law.com article and on TaxProf left out the /Home.aspx - that's why it wasn't working.)
