1. Yes, I know.
2. Well, I'd still want some information, and at least an open dialogue.
I think that particularly for Indiana, some of us are trying to get a good grasp of the reach that the school has. Most students go out-of-state (from their #s), but from what was being said earlier, it looks like that has been beaten down a bit. I definitely want to have a good understanding of what the current situation is.
Sorry. Wasn't trying to sound like a prick, but I've heard some ridiculous stuff from some 0L's, who clearly haven't bothered to look into the situation.
For 3L's, not a lot that is good. Our employment statistics were very poor last time I heard them. There is still plenty of time, but most places have been laying off employees, not hiring them.
From what I can tell, most below the top 1/3rd are having issues getting employment, but hopefully some firms start hiring.
The good thing about getting students from out of state is that a lot of them will move back, which increases where the grads go. I think it's a newer thing, but obviously, Indiana is the most popular destination. Their numbers from a few years ago were more impressive than I thought they would be, and had a good number across the country. Hard to say how those numbers have been changing or will end up once the market picks back up.
Indy isn't bad. I could live with it, but it's not "Plan A" by any means. Places are cheap, there is no traffic, and I'm sure the competition for jobs isn't too bad. I'd recommend checking it out if you can. It's like a big town or a small city, or whatever they say.
Transfer apps, assuming you don't do an ED, can go out when you get your grades. Turn around is quick (a few weeks). You need LOR's for most of them, which seems like it would be awkward (especially if you don't transfer). There are no waitlists, or getting dinged, or any garbage like that. I think it is appealing just to see what your options are.
