Employment prospects at Northwestern

Postby sparty11 » Fri Jan 29, 2010 12:24 am

I was wondering if anyone has any info on employment/career prospects for Northwestern for the class of 2013.

Where in my class do I have to finish to have a shot at:

1) academia
2) clerkship
3) biglaw

Top 5%? 10%? Top third? Median? Middle third? Bottom third?

Or seen from another perspective, what are my options if I finish at these thresholds?

How important is law review, etc?

Obviously, there are a lot of factors that figure into this, but I guess I'm just looking for whatever information/insight people have, and a general ballpark picture.

Thanks for your help!

Holy shit, I honestly don't know if this is some joke to make fun of 0L's, or if this is legitimate 0L.

Career prospects for the class of 2013?

I don't know about class of 2013, but for class of 2011 it's something like this:

clerkship/academia: top 5%
biglaw: top 40% (i.e. be clearly above median to have "a shot")
