From what I've heard here at WUSTL, things are similar to last year for our 2Ls, maybe even better than last year. Do you think things are worse at UIUC? Kind of sounds like it, based on this thread. Possible that the school's scandal has had any impact?
Hard to say....A lot of what we're seeing on here is top 20% + LR...the majority of the jobs at Illinois last year went to top 10% students. So we might have a slightly different cross-section of the class on TLS that makes it look worse than it was last year. Of course, it's still bad.
This is strange to me though. Top 20% + LR at WUSTL fares pretty well for NLJ jobs. Of course, I know a person or two who didn't get a job with those creds last year, and it certainly isn't safe by any stretch, but I'd say the average person around the 20%ile got a market paying SA job somewhere. Yet our schools have almost identical job stats year after year.
I suppose you're right though... pretty small sample and who knows what the cross-section is like. It'll be interesting to see what its like when the real numbers come out in a few years. Of course, by that point, I doubt we're still dicking around on TLS.
