Is there a hipster mismatch here? UChicago does it before it's cool and then NYU becomes a follower?

UVA: http://www.law.virginia.edu/html/career/stats.htm

Similar drops in percentage of grads at firms, NYU placing grads in larger firm on average (no surprise given that NYC firms are also big firms).

As was probably predictable, the T14 weathered the ITE storm reasonably well.

I'll say that being 'on the ground' class of 2011 seems to have faired worse than class of 2010. But class of 2011 hasn't had 9 months to seek employment post graduation yet, so those stats don't even exist.

This is great. Hopefully the schools who have something to lose follow suit.

This information clearly isn't helpful. We need detailed stats on how many students each school placed into the V5, V10, V20, etc. Only then can we determine its prestige.

Not to continue the trolling, but those 0Ls considering NYU should take note of the fact that--this is based off my own experience (and from hearing of my friends' experiences--NYU OCS is pretty good. They don't rest on their T6 credentials; they hustle. For example, one particular OCS officer went over my bidlist with me on the 4th of July.

I don't know that you can say this of other law schools. So 0Ls, take note: do your best to gather as much info as possible on the helpfulness/competency of career services. It's damn important, and I feel like this gets overlooked in the decision process.

I have to say my experience with the office of career services has been quite a bit different, I have had trouble even getting them to respond to my emails.

NYU OCS is heads and tails above my previous T13's CSO, just my $.02.

The amount of stuff nyu cso has done for me = amaze-ing, like these employment stats. Prospective students, take note! Really. As someone with middling grades, I was amazed I got the firm that was my 1st choice coming in. Yay nyu!

Wow, an awful lot of graduates not reporting salary info.

But I'm glad to see NYU is following other schools' lead and releasing this info. I would like to see schools be a little more specific about which job categories have what # of grads not reporting salaries. Edit: I see UVA has done this by showing the salary response rate by private and public sector.

So 5-10 people per class in the last three years at NYU have no job after a year and are still looking or even not looking anymore? What the hell are they going to do? This is considered good?

Some people go to law school for the fun of it with no intention of ever working after (rich family, my roommate's uncle did that at a lesser ranked school, or maybe they are becoming stay at home parents). They are crazy to me, but I have met people like this. Or even with the rigors of the LSAT, they are the bottom of the class at NYU, can't cut it to pass the bar and are too awkward to get another job.

I would suspect there are 5 people in any graduating class of 450+ who strike out at EIW and just can't be bothered to seriously look for work after that, but no doubt some people do everything right and still fall through the cracks. At some point you just gotta play the odds; 98% is pretty good.

I had a friend in college whose father was a multi-millionaire who told him he could get his inheritance early if and only if he graduated from law school. He went and got a 148 on the LSAT and has his father donate 100k to get him into the local TTT, graduated, was bored with his money, and then had his father buy his way into a PhD program to keep him busy through his late 20s.

Some people get married and have kids. The BigLaw husband they met at NYU Law brings home enough bacon.

^ All these make sense. So is there not even 1 person from NYU who is unemployed/not seeking not by will and totally screwed? If so, I guess that is pretty solid.

I'd wager that this is the case at any top law school, even in good economic times. Some people, like yourself, have such a high degree of aspergers that they can't help it.


But in all seriousness, I think it's the rare year when a school reports 100% employment to USNews.
