2012 OCI Data

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Apr 17, 2013 4:29 pm

CLS just released their numbers for offers accepted

Wachtell 2
Cravath 19
Skadden 17
SullCrom 12
DPW 20
Weil 6
Simpson 6
Cleary 20
Latham 6
K&E 9
Munger 1
Irell 4
W&C 1

Total = 123

ETA: they claimed 92%+ participation. Assuming 450 person class size, that's:

28.3% into V10
48.8% into V25
62.5% into V50
72.7% into V75
77.8% into V100

Note, those figures above are percent of participants. If any CLS kids want to double check these numbers, go ahead.

OP here,

Looks like 81.6% of participants accepted an offer through EIP. I just added up all the numbers from 2011, assuming same class size and participation rate and came to 78.2%. So, a small increase. Hiring in the V10 increased slightly (110 for 2011 versus 117 for 2012) as well as within the V25 (190 for 2011 versus 202 for 2012).

Of course: (1) some may have been offered but didn't accept any; (2) some may have gotten jobs outside of OCI, e.g., through mass mailing (sure, these two points can overlap). So, I don't think the offer acceptance figure is quite an accurate reflection of overall placement. Nevertheless, it gives a good conservative baseline.

As someone in that class, I find that number very hard to believe. VERY HARD. There were far too many people still doing Fall or Spring OCI. I know too many smart people who struck out to believe those figures. Somebody got very creative with number crunching. I'm talking about that 82% number.

I added up every single accepted offer and it came out to 338.

My assumption of a class size of 450 could be incorrect. My assumption of 92% participation rate could be incorrect (i.e., 414 participants).

338/450 only constitutes 75.1% of the entire class, while 338/414 constitutes 81.6% of participants.

I would argue that 25% of the class not accepting an offer through EIP constitutes a large number.

At nearly every other law school, 25% of the class accepting an offer through EIP would be cause for unprecedented celebration.
