why is everyone so pumped about lawnet? Are you guys really calling up people to figure out if it's up?

I enrolled just an hour ago. Since I met both my deposit and housing application deadlines, I'll be considered in the first round of review, which starts tomorrow.

Anyone depositing after May 1 will be reviewed in late May or June.

There's no first round of review (so far as you submit the housing app by today, unless that's what you mean - in which case my bad!).

It's a random lottery for when you're given an assignment, unlike financial aid. If you got your housing app in by today and you put in the deposit, you'll be fine.

Edit: Saw your last post - I think we're on the same page. Nice.

Part of the ranking is the COL in target market (I think) so that hurts us and NYU.

Its not only CoL-- they emphasize A3 clerkships in their rating system, which inevitably CLS/NYU and Cornell will rank weaker in relative to Duke, Chicago, UVA. It means nothing.

Lets be honest, if we were die hard gunning for clerkships out of school, we wouldnt have picked CLS. For actual firm placement columbia is second only to the intangibles of hys.

I am also now on. Unsure about posting in the forum... I think I'll wait and see how that plays out or just continue to post here instead.

Yeah I know what you mean, after TLS and Facebook I'm not sure how Lawnet is that much different.

I think LawNet is more private in the sense that it includes only deposited CLS students, whereas the fbook group could include any accepted student, and it includes those poor sad souls who aren't on TLS (and the wiser souls who aren't on fbook, for that matter).

That NYU box in the rop right has to be wrong. Maybe they mixed it up with NYLS, which would be much more likely to be in that area of the graph?

Hah, I think you're right. NYLS underemployment is 34.6% and NYU's is 2.7%. I would've thought such an egregious error would be beneath Businessweek. How embarrassing for them.

Nah, it's not. NYU's is like 3%; NYLS is 34%. Or something like that.

Really good article aside from that, though.

edit: oh, the exact numbers are like three posts above me. D'oh.
