27/39. Pretty horrifying, considering Emory's class seems to have been about the same size as WashU's last year.
i will always be impressed at the placement of WUSTL and its OCI especially considering the fact that its in a non-major legal city/state. everyone else that does as well is either in a large state/city such as DC, NY, or LA...
In terms of biglaw, WUSTL actually does the same or worse than its peers (UIUC, ND, etc.). Not by a lot, of course, but they are not better at biglaw placement.
I will be interested to see how WUSTL does with Dean Spivey at the helm. It seems like WUSTL is retaining/attracting firms ITE better than some of their peers. But as that big post above illustrates, more firms doesn't always translate into more placement.
And as always, getting a job is on us. Spivey is a top-notch CSO, but even he will tell you (and he has told me in person) that he cannot get everyone a job on his own. His office will do all that they can to place us and will put us in a position to succeed, but we've got to hit the ground running with networking and grades.
