Of course, you can e-mail admissions for the 2008 stats but they are basically the same as on the web: 2008 employer type/average salary/% reporting. The only difference is the e-mailed version has % and raw numbers for each field as well as a generic geographic distribution of grads. From what I can tell, the 2008 class looks comparable to the 3 year averages as well as the 2007 stats put on TLS: 61% employed in firms w/an average salary of $142,841 (88% reporting). Clerkships, Government, and Public Interest numbers for 2008 are very close as well.
The only obvious red flag seems to be the 30/40 unreported salaries in the "business" sector. Of course, this could be the case each year: 2007 had 41 business grads and a similar reported average salary. Either way, bottom 10% here I come.
Anyone know anything about those "business" grads? Are they the ones that go to work for the companies (like Shell and Exxon) that recruit at UT for their legal teams? That's be something I'd be interested in, but I'm just wondering what exactly "business" grads do....
Anyone have any info?
"business" typically includes non-law firm jobs like the ones you mentioned, but it also includes starbucks baristas
