In case you guys haven't seen it, Chicago posted their c/o 2012 ABA stats. They match up very well with the leaked summer data (posted on the first page). If you project using c/o 2013's summer data you might expect a 75+% for next years stats.

However, the CW seems to be that c/o 2014 hiring leveled off or even got scaled back a little.

Thanks for posting that. Biglaw numbers look to be up to 56% from 45%, and federal clerkships + biglaw are up to 72% from 57%.

That means 3 out of every four students was in biglaw or a federal clerkship. Holy crap. Isn't that really good?

Probably not straight after law school. A lot of people work first.

I really want a job after graduation. Am I willing to pay extra for more job security? Maybe.

Accepted! They said they'd send out aid info within two weeks. If I have a competing offer, should I go ahead and send it? And if so, where to?

I don't think you're being crazy and I actually agree with the rationale, but you prolly don't wanna base your decision on the ABA stats. What happens if next year NW ties Chi? You may regret passing on the money

Can't be more than 20%.


So top grades and a little bit of luck according to that chart. I wonder how many of those are in Chicago


Well, most of those are probably diversity positions.


Current 1L at UoC (sorry for butting in on your 2016 thread, congrats!) - but this year it seems like a fairly significant # of 1L's got SA positions, and many were non-diversity. Of my 15 closest friends here, 10 of them are doing an SA. Only a couple are IP, and none are diversity hires. Not sure if this is a unique year, but I wouldn't be surprised if it's over 20%, and easily.
