The Atlantic had an article Tuesday about Class of 2012's employment numbers.

I'm wondering if the way "underemployment" statistics being measured is correct? I thought the figures were worse.

I wish that employment statistics regarding law disciplines individually would be released. If I were considering going to law school this fall to become a patent attorney, I would have virtually no employment statistics to help me make that decision.

Patent depends on the market a lot really. Certain places in Texas and large cities are glutted and you can only get interviews with a PhD, some botiques in the Midwest you can get into without an engineering background for a UG degree. Depends on what market you want to shop in after graduating.
