And what percentage of the class is getting BigLaw nowadays? I know UCLA is rumored to have a lot of people who want to do PI, is this true?
I know one person doing a 1L internship in NY. I think self selection here is definitely huge, although I have some classmates that seem undecided on where they want to end up. I wish there were some 2L/3L that were willing to post, maybe if I change the thread title.
As far as lots of people wanting to do PI, yes there are a lot of people who want to do PI. I think the PI section is pretty well represented in my small section and so that might be why I feel that way, but I have met plenty of people that have no interest in corporate law at all. However since I've only attended one law school I can't really tell you if it is particularly true of UCLA, or if that is just how law schools in general are.
