Law School Transparency employment rates

Postby lawlala » Sat Oct 19, 2013 1:47 pm

Are employment rates from LST concerning grads fresh out of school or 9 months (or a certain amount of time) later? Apologies in advance if this is an obvious question/stated explicitly somewhere else.

Great thanks! Just found an extra link to confirm that.

Haha so true. I had a glimmer of hope that the rates were talking about right after law school, so of course I needed TLS to crush it haha.

Random question, but it relates to this thread..

For the employment stats of the class of 2012, specifically the biglaw numbers, assuming those graduates got those jobs through OCI, that would be when they were interviewing in the fall of 2010? Am I correct in assuming that?

For the most part yes.

Is there a better place than random 'X school class of 201X' threads to look for a better idea of what more recent students are doing in terms of biglaw hiring?

Some schools give out the previous year's OCI results to people currently going through OCI. That's the best I know of.

Interesting. Has there been much speculation on which markets/schools are improving and which aren't?

I haven't followed other schools all that closely but I don't think there have been big swings among the top schools.

I am bumping this thread because LST reports should always be stickied early on in 0L's career. Please be careful with the decision you are about to commit to because it can potentially ruin your life permanently. In practical terms, unless you are wealthy, $150K+ debt will crush you for life at a young age.
