1. Do any Chicago firms recruit at Cornell? I know Cornell is NYC focused and most Big Law jobs are in NYC as is, but wondering if Big Law in Chicago from Cornell is possible.
2. Anyone know what % of 2Ls landed firm jobs last summer, how about the summer before? There seems to be a solid correlation between these numbers and the NLJ250, so I'm trying to get a rough idea of what NLJ number we might be able to expect next year (or at least higher/lower etc).
2. Dean Derosa seems to indicate that at least 80% of the current 2Ls (class of '13) got an offer through OCI (or AJF, august jobs fair, in our case), and that almost every 2L participated. Just walking around and randomly talking to 2Ls, I've ran into one 2L so far that did not have a job lined up for the summer. Maybe the jobless 2Ls just don't go to class, but at least anecdotally and according to our deans, the 2Ls didn't have too much of a problem getting jobs, even people below median.
The picture is less rosy for 3Ls, but the deans seem to indicate that firms have started altering their recruitment policy last year and are now digging deeper into the class of fewer (t14?) schools.
