Study break (before I've gotten around to studying today...FML) to peddle my pretty charts:

viewtopic.php?f=1&t=150004

I'd be anxious about either one. Then again, these numbers are conservative.

The numbers have started to come back a little bit for this summer.

Some 2010 vs 2011 numbers: (2010/2011)

Kirkland: 32/54
Jones Day: 8/11
Mayer: 11/13
Latham: 9/10
Sidley: 20/41
Skadden: 10/9
Winston: 22/22
McDermott Will & Emery: 8/12
Neal, Gerber & Eisenberg: 0/4
Vedder Price: 1/5
DLA Piper: 5/4
Katten Muchin Rosenman: 5/18

Don't have time to go through all of them, but some of the bigger firms do seem to be increasing their class size again...the decreases I found were no more than 1 or 2, while there were some rather large increases.

You need to be anon for that? And this is a thread about the midwest T25s, not T6s...

Accidental anon and this thread seemed to be morphing into Chicago biglaw discussion.

This topic's actually vindicated my decision to attend T14 at sticker over Wash U with $$$. Paying 100k and spending 3 years in school only to have a 50/50 shot at a 60k/year job sounds...

Yeah, the bigger firms increase should help everyone out a little bit...but still we're only talking about a comeback of 50-75 SAs this year. From what people seem to be saying, this OCI should be better (the number of firms at ND's OCI is certainly up, but I'm not sure if that's any indication), we just don't know how much better.

In it's heyday wustl placed barely 30 percent in biglaw or market firms. Today it's probably like 10-15 tops, prolly less. For 1L summer, i think like 10 kids got market biglaw gigs, most are working in smaller plaintiff shops or PI/gov. If i had to guess, median is tough i not a URM/connections wizz. But St. Louis midwest seems to have tons of small firms.

I've been feverishly NALPing everyone that I would ever even consider working for in NY, DC and Boston and have noticed this same trend. Small classes in '10 were usually adding between 2 and 5 SAs for '11. Large classes were sometimes adding as many as 20.

The market has recovered somewhat - I'm sure it's still much more competitive than the wonder year of '07 (it was '07 wasn't it?) but doesn't look to be nearly as bad as '09 or '10.
