They gave us the who worked where list for this summer, and since it is relevant to your interests...
(I do not certify any of this, it is based on my glancing at it quickly, there could be slight variance)
46/183 (25%) of 1Ls have firm jobs, the vast majority of which are market paying, but I can't certify 100%
193/238 (81%) of 2Ls are at firms, I won't even begin to decide whether they are market paying but again the vast majority is a safe assumption. Full disclosure, there might be people who are splitting that are counted twice, so that number might be deviate a little (either upward - I see at least one split between firm/judge, or downward - people doing 2 firms). 49 of these are at V10s, 101 at V30s.
Of those that are not at firms:
3/238 (1.3%) corporate
16/238 (6.7%) government
1/238 (.4%) judge
1/238 (.4%) non-law
23/238 (9.6%) public interest
I'm missing one person somewhere idc.
Of the 45 not at firms, some did not do OCI, I do not know how many, but it is some. The corporate jobs appear legit, and surely some of the public interest jobs were competitive, or what the people targeted. That being said, some of those 45 struck out and I have no way to estimate what portion of them are dissatisfied with their results.
So a conservative percentage of successful outcomes is 80-83%, an ambitious estimate might get close to 95%.
All things considered, I'd say U.Chi killed it on the jerbs this year, you all should be optimistic.
If there is any specific info I can get for anyone let me know and I'll do so subject to my discretion on if I think it shouldn't be public knowledge. Feel free to PM me if you'd rather.
Don't forget that some people opted out of the list, likely those not working firm jobs, so that will drive down the numbers. I noticed at least 2 2L's missing on my first glance through, both doing PI. I think a better low-end estimate is 75% got firm jobs, maybe as low as 70%.
Also, 95% is to high an ambitious estimate for total successful outcomes. Probably between 85 and 90% tops, closer to 85 is my guess.
But yes, overall, the numbers are pretty good.
