Bottom of class at GULC never had a good shot at biglaw.
Depends on how you define bottom. In past years 80% of the class got something out of OCI.
Back when I got in during the boom years, I had GULC students telling me that outside of top third is iffy. This is hearsay, sure, but marginally better than the evidenc you posted (see: none).
Marginally is the key-word.
The 79% number is from XOXO. And it's entirely believable. They placed 50% NLJ250 prior to ITE. Count federal clerkships, federal government jobs, people who end up at litigation/IP boutiques, and it's entirely believable that 79% got *something* out of OCI. Certainly, the NLJ250+clerkship numbers alone make the "top third" claim ridiculous.
