I don't have concrete numbers but just from talking to people it sounds like a decent percentage did not get anything through OCI this year. So how does Penn show 96% employed at graduation? When does everyone get jobs between now and grad?
There are countless legal jobs outside of just law firms. Being a Penn student is certainly good enough to get you something by mailing and contacting places all over the country. Read what OutCold posted above and refer to the TLS Employment Forum in general for tips.
Thanks for the advice, even though it left me even a little more depressed on this beautiful sunny day in Philadelphia. Tons of debt + coming to law school because I wanted to work in biglaw, kind of sucks as you see your dreams get flushed away.
Well that's a totally different analysis you have to do for yourself. Whether it's worth the debt is just a different thing entirely. No fellow student can give you advice on that.
