GULC's class of 2009 placed ~19% into Gov and PI combined(more than any other T14), with an additional 5% in Article 3 clerkships. Assuming 40% of students getting a job paying market in c/o 2014 (optimistic, but not at all unreasonable I don't think) with those numbers staying the same you have ~65% in Biglaw/Gov/PI/A3 clerkships. Check you placement numbers.

There's nothing to indicate how prestigious or not those Gov/PI positions are. Also, you were referring to the percentage of students that were going to be debt pwned, and anyone working gov/pi is eligible for GULC's generous LRAP.

"No" doesn't quite fully express it. "Are fucking crazy?" is more like it.
