I think this year's recruiting is just as bad as last year. I don't really see a change in number of firms that came on campus.
WUSTL is a lot different than vandy on up. Here you don't hear people talking about V20s or V50s, you hear people talking about how they got a callback at the local firms that collectively hire about 35 people a year, pay 30K below market and pretend that you won't be worked as hard as Chicago, etc.
Then you have the IP secure people, but they talk about firms that only IP know/care about
Then you have a huge chunk of the class that didn't even get interviews at OCI. I had interviews each day of the week for EIW and only saw the same faces.
Some people don't even seem to know whats going on/or are keeping quite about their striking out
At the end of the day it's hard to tell if this is better or worse than last year
A lot different than USC too.
Wustl's stats are similar to USC/UCLA/Vandy/Cornell but our placement numbers are worse than GW, BU, BC.
The difference between Vandy and Wustl is equal to the difference between Wustl and Villanova.
The quality of "midlaw" and regional biglaw is terrible at Wustl.
Also, WUSTL IS NOT a powerhouse in the Midwest. When I go Cincinnati for a callback and the HR lady doesn't know anything about WUSTL that is a bad sign.....
