Maybe 1% or 2%?
Of the four people I know with SAs, only one is in a major market (DC).
It is not uncommon though for the majority of 1Ls to have no SA positions right? Although some 1Ls do get jobs, it is not a sign of the "lawpocolypse" that many have not.
I was under the impression that it wasn't generally until 2L that firms viewed law students as worth the investment and close enough to graduation to make lucrative summer offers.
Most law firms never hired paid 1L SAs, even before ITE.
