I know of at least seven people who have accepted offers at firms in ATL or NYC. I know of many others who have offers but are still waiting to hear back from certain firms and/or are still deciding between their current ones.
What all firms have you heard? I have heard people will be at Jones Day, K&S, AGG, A+B, Parker Hudson, Kilpatrick and Sutherland.
P.S. Its sad that we are saying "at least 7 people"...out of 250. No other top 25 law schools really have issues like Emory does in getting students hired.
Yeah, it's really pretty awful. Even if each of those firms took a different student, that's like 3% of our class. As bad as the economy is, I still thought that at least the top 15% or so would be in pretty good shape for getting a job. To be honest, if I had known it would be like this I probably would have retaken the LSAT and tried to get in to Duke or UVA, even at full sticker price, instead of coming to Emory on scholarship. Ugh :/
