Collectively speaking, the "bottom of the class" among all law grads gets no lawyer job at all. And that is a huge percentage of grads.
ITE and even before, PD jobs aren't easy to get. Given its probably not as competitive as a lot of firm hiring, but in populated states, they get lots of applications. In bigger/more interesting cities its also extremely competitive (NOLA, Boston, etc.).
