I wonder if the firms are doing this so that they can make offers to most or all of their classes after this summer instead of no-offering a ton of their SA's like Fulbright in Dallas did in 2009 (half of 2L's were no offered after the summer) and Andrews Kurth in Dallas and Austin (75% did not receive permanent offers after their SA summer).
Firms have certainly lowered their class sizes and this appears to be a trend that will likely continue into the foreseeable future. I think that this is a factor of both the marketplace and the desire to keep offer-rates as high as possible.
For the record, only 66% of AK's class was no-offered in Dallas in 2009 and everyone received an offer in Austin.
Yeah, you're right Chadwick. I was looking at the wrong Fulbright in Austin, not AK. Fulbright Jaworski in Austin no-offered 75% of their SA class.
"ONLY 66% of AK's class [in Dallas] was no-offered" still sounds really terrible though.
