Considering that the vast majority of your class will not get jobs from OCI, I'd keep hustling. After all, I'm sure your school has a greater than 20% employment rate, so keep working.

I'd be curious to know what tier 2 school dominates in its market. Thinking like somewhere in the Dakotas or Alaska? Just curious.

Neither of these areas has a T2 school.

Unless Temple, Villanova, and RU-C suddenly merged, there's no such thing.

Cumberland does very very well in its market--although you can't say dominate because of the existence of Bama.

UPenn dominates Philly

NJ is split between the 3 NJ schools

I'm assuming it is RU-C because no one in their right mind would claim nova or temple dominate Philly. RU-C does not dominate its market.

Penn does not really dominate Philly because Penn self-selects into NYC/DC. Only the small (though not insignificant number) of Penn people with strong Philly ties targeting the area dominate Philly.

Good job, critique the logic but not the conclusion. So you all think RU-C dominates its market?

If RU-C's market is Philly, then no.

If RU-C's market is NJ, then still no.

Isn't it possible that no one school dominates the Philly market?

RU-C roughly splits between Philly and South Jersey (which is an extension of the Philly legal market, with the exception of local PI/government).

RU-C has the Camden law student market locked down.
