New NLJ 250 Numbers waiting thread...

Postby JCougar » Wed Feb 23, 2011 2:48 am

They have historically come out the last week of February. Anyone want to guess as to the wreckage we're going to see? They will be for the class of 2010, who did OCI in the fall of 2008.

My school's c/o 2009 had 27.5% NLJ 250 placement. I'm going to wager that we see that number drop to maybe 16-17%. In 2009, Northwestern placed the most in NLJ 250, with 55.9%. That number's obviously going to drop, but my guess is that Northwestern will fare better than most due to their class having so much previous work experience...which is something that has seemingly increased in relative value during the ITE recession.

But where is the biggest decline going to appear? Is it going to be the tail end of the T14? The schools just outside of the T14? Or is it going to get even worse for the T30-50?

Doing OCI in fall 08.... was that the worst year to expect? I know classes now should be doing/getting slightly better as time goes on.

Yup...these statistics will be from the absolute bottom of the legal recession.

May actually be '09 OCI bro. Go look at that leaked Cornell data on ATL.

Well either way, current stats are bound to be higher than the ones that are soon to be released. Let's hope anyways...

Yeah, you may be right...2009 OCI (c/o 2011) could be worse.

I can't find the Cornell data you are talking about, though.

True, but the NLJ numbers will be for those employed at graduation from c/o 2010, and IIRC summer '09 was one of the lowest offer rate summers ever. MLB philly making 35% offers, etc.
