Right, right, which is what I thought last year. The problem, though, is that firms hire after 1L year AND by the time the next couple of classes get to that point, there will be a buttload of qualified people from the above classes without jobs and looking. How exactly firms are going to go about that is really anyone's guess. Will they start taking recent grads in the summer classes, extend to 3Ls? Only take 2Ls? Worse, will all of their positions already be taken by the backlog many of the firms (stupidly) built up? I'm trying to think of a good analogy, but I'm not really smart enough to do that, so I hope you understand what I am saying.
I mean, it's scary bad. However, T-14 I would still say are probably ok, (T-6 was hyperbole, although even some of the T-14 are taking huge hits) especially the ones in bigger cities.
