VAULT 2016 rankings

Postby NDOMUKONGGGG » Tue Jun 16, 2015 2:52 pm

Who knows when they're coming out? Last year looks like it was June 18...

Guesses for any big moves this year?

And yet people (some of your peers) will likely care about them. Always been confused as to why whenever there's a discussion on Vault someone has to chime in on why Vault is terrible. It's subjective, it's only relevant to a small subset of biglaw. We get it, you're past petty things like rankings and prestige. The methodology is well known now, posting about how much they suck is silly.

It's sad that I'm so excited for these rankings. I'm sick.

Prediction: no big movement in the V15.

as the (sometimes) proud owner of these fora, I feel that I am at least somewhat obligated to keep myself educated on whether or not Quinn is likely to remain.

Everyone else in the top 10 gave 100% return offers, what's Kirkland's deal?

As in they didn't no offer 20 people? They no offered less people? They no offered more people? They gave everyone return offers? What accounts for the inaccuracy? (Don't mean to bombard, just curious)

chill

they probably used the data that showed that 21 people didn't return or something (i forgot, check nalp)

i think the nalp report shows that they didn't no offer anyone

K&E had 100% offer rates in NY and Chicago. Really doubt they no offered the entire SF class, so it's probably a returning summer stat.

Yeah, I just checked NALP too, you're most likely right. Are Vault stats really that unreliable? Woof.

Is there a place to find GPA cut-offs for these firms for each school?
