Is this just self-selection? Where are those graduates who got an SA position going (it's not clerkships or PI because those numbers don't appear to have increased substantially)?
Both NLJ and OCI numbers are accurate. They're just capturing different things.
1. Different years. 70% for OCI 2009, class of 2011; 82% for OCI 2010, class of 2012; and latest NLJ250 numbers are from class of 2010.
2. Different denominators. NLJ looks at percentage of student body. OCI looks at percentage of EWI participants.
3. Different sets. NLJ will exclude boutiques that may've interviewed at EIW. And students that clerk will be included in OCI numbers, but excluded from NLJ #s. Also some people that go govt/PI after school might participate in EIW and receive offers (to be safe) before securing govt/PI offer later in the semester.
