I'd guess more like top 15-20% if we're taking about NYC biglaw firms.


You've got outdated numbers. http://admissions.nyu.edu/explore.nyu/fast.facts.html

These are C/O 2008 numbers. NYU went up a bit this year, but so did everybody. eg: Penn is up 10-20 points in each measure. Duke/NU don't have 2013 data so i didn't use it.

This is my plan. I figure that although I have numbers that allow for consideration at a V25 and 5+ years of WE, I will likely bid much lower with the hopes of simply landing a job and coming out with something ... if only I had come to this realization a year ago ...


but isn't it also true (or i've at least heard it as conjecture) that the recession/reduction in work to be had has hit the lower ranked firms disproportionately, and thus they will be the ones w/ the smaller class sizes and less need for incoming associates? there's an argument in here about not bidding too conservatively but i'm not sure if its a viable one, and i'm tired and on a boltbus to DC and don't feel like teasing out nuances of this line of thought. any takers?
