Total EIP Placement (according to OP): 67.5%
It's interesting that 60+% got V100, and only 6% got "other" Biglaw jobs. To me that suggests that, had the bottom 3rd aimed a little lower, it might have been better rewarded. Seems like something that will correct itself when next year's data come sout. Still, have the class in V50 jobs ITE is pretty impressive.
It's actually a bloodbath. This isn't 67% of the class in biglaw jobs, it's 67% of the EIW participants. This means that anyone who knew they didn't want biglaw, because they wanted PI, gov't, etc., isn't counted. In the past, well over 90% of EIW participants got offers, and many got multiple offers.
I don't get it, it's just 2Ls. Columbia's law classes are about 400 people, which is the number of people who showed up for the OCI. It seems, unless I'm missing something, that most of the class showed up for the OCI, no?
Also, I would bet that a higher percentage of kids are going to OCI now that job prospects are harder to come by, even if they plan on doinig PI or gov't.
