I don't understand this dumb trend of separation T14 from non-T14. It should really be ordered by quantity of students from each school.

At their cocktail event for rising 2Ls this past summer, I think they said they were aiming for a class of 19 in Boston, so business must have ticked up considerable and recently.


What goes up...

Exactly. Maybe some firms are drowning in business right now, but it seems like a huge gamble to bring in a summer class at or above pre-ITE levels (looking at you DPW). Even a minor event could derail the "recovery" any time between now and Q4 2013 when these kids start. Of course, the students bear all of the risk in this scenario so maybe they don't care.

I'm not surprised -- and you can't really take accepted offers as evidence of outplacing.

Same is true for STB and DPW, though, despite similar class size. Could be because those schools place better in DC, but as far as NYC goes, it seems to be true.

Small class sizes for Stanford and UChicago + self-selection out of NY make those kind of comparisons a fool's errand.

Cahill, based upon reputation and the contemptuous way they treated people at my school's OCI, is also full of assholes and likely a poor place to work.

Yeah, I did not get a good vibe from them during my callback.

Yeah, my interviewer was almost 20 minutes late, which jeopardized another interview I had set up at the end of the day. Total prick.

I'm shocked at the lack of T2 schools. I thought people who were top 5% at T2s had a good chance for biglaw ny or other v100.

Does anybody have Wachtell yet? I know that quite a few people from my school are going, and I'd be interested in seeing the breakdown.

Why do you guys even care what the distributions are? If you have a SA position, then its already done. If your a 1L looking at prospective firms, you could find your schools distribution from OCS. If your a 0L, get into law school first!

I've obviously made a huge mistake. Judging from this chart it should be Osgoode or bust.

Anybody who chose Harvard over UCLA is probably kicking themselves right now too.
