You see, folks, every number, figure, percentage, ratio, graph, chart, list, formula, sum, average, mean, median, mode, datum, matrix, anecdote, representation, estimate, guesstimate, table, total, correlation, quotient, product, quartile, decile, integer, digit, amount, quantity, unit, tally, fraction, numeral, dollar amount, rank or score--whether categorical, nominal, ordinal, or continuous--and whether it originated from, passed though, or ended up in the hands of a law school--has almost certainly been spun, distorted, obfuscated, misrepresented, twisted, exaggerated, changed, concealed, misstated, whitewashed, altered, perverted, tainted, doctored, slanted, faked, falsified and/or fabricated by the school that came into contact with it to make it look more tempting to prospective students.
You really shouldn't believe anything--not a single thing--that these places are telling you. Their CSOs and their admissions offices are under tremendous pressure to make the school look like an appealing place to the most talented students--otherwise their US News rank might go down and everyone will get fired. As a result, they are constantly looking for ways to distort any fact about that organization in the aforesaid manner.
This is why you shouldn't believe the NALP figure of 57% of JD graduates getting FTLT JD-required legal jobs--because those numbers are tallied up by the schools themselves. It is almost assuredly much worse than that, and every economist's estimate of the number of legal jobs created each year suggests that that number should be significantly lower.
You see, lawyers are trained to shamelessly slant stuff in their favor. But this only works if it's done before a seasoned, experienced judge, and where the other side has had a chance to present its counter-argument. Outside of the courtroom, this kind of slanting and obfuscation is called lying. When it's directed at unsophisticated consumers such as law school applicants, it's called fraud. But sometimes people in the legal industry don't know how to turn this trait that is only acceptable in the courtroom off.
It won't be a good time to go to law school until the JD class drops to around 25K in size.
