I know this is OT but in light of these #'s (from 2013 too), I don't understand ATL's rankings. Especially why they refuse to account for merit-based scholarships (for which there is data), and put USC at rank 30-something when BL placement is like 30% of the criteria.

Given that Penn and Cornell are the top schools when it comes to employment (without the necessity of SFJ) you have to believe that they both belong in the coveted T6…especially since they place their grads at really good paying firms.

Correct. NYU and Yale? I hope you enjoyed your T6 ride while it lasted. Penn and Cornell? Welcome to the club!

Everything has changed, kids. It's not your father's T6 anymore.

Even of the % of jobs isn't as in favor of columbia as before, it still has way more placement power. Take a look at the Summer class distirbutions thread. CLS seems to place its students into more pretfigious opprotunitities.

If a school you are interested in doesn't release its NALP Report, push them to do so before you attend. It won't show income by class rank but it does give pretty detailed salary data based on job type and location.

Is this a red flag? Are there legitimate [non scam] reasons for not releasing the NALP report?

it can't be good relative to the ABA report... if a school has good info on itself, it will let people know

i would expect a school to be eager to release a NALP report if a lot of its grads went to 2-50 firm boutiques but ABA reports don't reflect them as prestigious as high paying

I can't think of any. As starry eyed said the NALP report is a good way to see the quality of the jobs we don't count in the 100+/Fed clerk category.

I guess UT really is going to wait until after the deposit deadline passes...

If the employment rate went up, UT's CSO would've definitely released them by now--especially when it competes with so many other schools for quality applicants. This is not good news.

That is fucking atrocious


This is the email I got from the CSO last thursday:

"Dear XXXXXXXXX,

Welcome to Texas Law! The Class of 2014 Career and Employment Statistics will be available online on or before April 15, 2015. Please visit our Career and Employment Statistics page next week to view updated statistics and hiring employer lists.

If you need anything else, please let us know."

In theory, they have until the end of the day to comply with their own "deadline"

Columbia is different; for the highest LSAT scorers, Columbia is only competing with roughly ~8 schools or so.

Texas is competing with the entire T14 + all the regional Texas schools + Vanderbilt+ regional west coast schools (because for some reason, many kids in TX want to work on the west coast and many people on the west coast think that going to UT will bring them back to the west coast)...all for the same LSAT score/GPA band.

This is just not the case for Columbia. There's different dynamics at play.

Columbia's NLJ250 rate--which underreports BL placement and doesn't include clerkships--was 66%, topping the list. CLS is obviously going to end up in the 70s. They're probably just delayed because they have their mega EIP info session for the 1Ls this week.
