These numbers aren't all final. I know at least one of the firms mentioned above is still considering applicants for the summer.

This is the point I was making in another thread. Class sizes remain small across the board compared to pre- crash levels. So where are all the jobs that people are using to claim that biglaw hiring is returning? Look at the numbers in this thread.

TBF, I think those claims (though they may be misconstrued as something else) are really referring to the V10 / firms that are more selective than V10. What I think has changed (and this thread shines light on this, to a certain extent) is that when the V10-type firms started hiring close to pre-2008 levels, they started focusing even more exclusively on T14 schools. That's how we're seeing a rebound in OCI hiring at the t14, without seeing a lot of non-V10ish class sizes coming even close to pre-2008 levels.

You sure this is accurate for Chicago? That 17 number for UChi makes sense firm-wide, but I don't think we have that many going to the Chicago office alone. I thought more on the order of 8-10.

I don't think it's terribly small. I'm sure you'll see with NALP that many others have really cut down. In my interview they hoped for 39 or so and got that. It's also biggest class they've had in several years.

No one is saying that biglaw hiring is returning to boom times. These numbers just show that the sky isn't falling. Biglaw has always been extraordinarily difficult to obtain for most law students and it remains that way.

At least in NYC, CLS seems to have cleaned up, but of course until the stats come out it's too early to tell.

There's seems to be some non-T50 or even T100 schools where people seem to be landing BigLaw jobs... Kind of interesting...

Yeah, but the real white-shoe firms will still stick with T14 or at least T20. Why not? We're damn cheap in this economy.

S&C? What do ya mean? Unless I'm county wrong, out of 141, only about 11 are out of the T20, only 16 out of the T14. Clearly 90%+ are elite schools. Still, my hat's off to the non-T20's. They must have busted their himps to get in (more than the rest).....kudos to them.

So you really meant to say that the white shoe firms stick to top 20 schools with some exceptions? First, that's kind of an arbitrary line to draw. Second, it's a useless statement.
