Purely anecdotal, but it seems like a lot of people at UVA got 1L firm jobs this year relative to how rare it is. I and a handful of others got offers from firms in home/ small markets in the south, and I know a decent amount of people landed Texas and Atlanta as well. Have heard about 2 in DC and 1 in NY too
No idea what the total figures are, but just from talking to people it sounds like there is a solid amount, with a huge advantage to those who are from smaller cities in the south
I will second this. I'm willing to be that our numbers for 1L firm jobs will be up this year. It seems as if you are from the South, have around median grades, and are not a complete mouth breather then you scooped up some kind of 1L SA. That being said, not all 1L firm jobs are equal. I know people who are getting paid on an hourly basis and will not be bringing in $2K+ a week during the summer. But some money is definitely better than no money.
