Maybe I'm missing something, but I think FTLTBR - long-term school funded (none) should be 71% (133/187). Without solos, it's 69% (128/187).

Regardless, glad to see that our stats have improved from last year's abysmal rates (with a much larger class size, too).

It is without solos. And 128/187 = 68.4% = 68% rounded. Also, there are 3 LSF, not none. 125/187 = 66.8% = 67% rounded.

I think that's the math anyway.

NU with <80% employed? Even though 65% get BLFC? That's an odd dichotomy to me.

Is issue is "Bar Required" and NU has a ton of JD/MBAs who recently end up working in non-law jobs. FTLTBR includes someone making 30k doing shitlaw but someone making 145K in business. You have to take out JD/MBAs from NU data if you want to compare it to a typical school.

Not bad when you consider last year 82% of JD/MBAs (which are around 10% of the class) went into business instead of law.

This sort of thing is why comparing schools based on naked metrics comes up with weird results.

As soon as the ABA releases the data. I can usually turn it around in under 3 hours.



Thanks for the awesome info. I didnt know if you use the individual school reports


Nope, would be a total waste of time and involve data entry risk.

Stop rationalizing NU's relative decline. Its numbers will soon plunge to the depths of YLS. #OMGPENN_CORNELL

Did I mess up by not discounting solo firms?

Yeah, was going to say this. Pretty sure the JD-MBA's are in our numbers, and many of those jobs aren't bar required. Our JD Advantage number is higher than Penn + Cornell + Duke + Virginia combined for this year (of the lower T14s that have released).If you counted them all, it'd be ~87% without LSF. If you figure some percentage are bad outcomes, maybe 83-84%? It's very likely non-negligible though with 25 JD Advantage jobs.

The parsed out info on the school's website for 2013 grads has the 25-50-75th percentile salary of JD Avantage jobs at $100K-$120K-$135K. Lots of good outcomes.

Although we have kind of been over this, NYC BigLaw provides the most reliable source of "desirable" hiring.


i meant to imply that these numbers probably aren't sustainable

Not a mess up at all, but it explains the math difference. I have not been counting them because that seems to be the consensus of the thread. On the other hand, the ABA counts them so it's not an unreasonable thing to do.

NYC hiring has been pretty consistent going back a decade.

Corp is sustainable because the legal costs on transaction are still tiny compared to banking and other people who take a cut. It's a rounding error.

Lit isn't because the costs are becoming so high that the benefits of a "good" firm aren't really that apparent. It doesn't make sense to pay Quinn 6 mil for a patent case that at the absolute worst worth like 20 mil, but probably more like 7mil.
