Lots of goose eggs out there. They just don't seem inspired (understandably) to go through the additional pain of delineating info on this thread. If you look at various individual school threads (and I'm referring to T-14 in addition to all threads) you will see that a lot of people have struck out.

But the problem is that 1Ls and 0Ls will come in this thread and be like "oh everything's great, jobs for everyone!"

I don't think 1L/0Ls take that message away. I do think that it would be nice if even strike outs add info but I understand why they often don't.

I'm not convinced that things are materially worse than last year though.

Oh no doubt, but at that point it's not like the person is choosing a school based on a false impression.

i think there's a grammatical error in there, which is impressive in a "fill in the blank" format response. that and ending with a preposition make me wonder if there's something fishy going on here.

I was outed for abusing anon and being annoying.
