What percent of your law school is on LinkedIn?

Postby Lord Randolph McDuff » Sat Dec 20, 2014 11:31 pm

I recently attempted to check on my former classmates who I knew to be unemployed on the networking site LinkedIn, however I discovered that most of them were not members of the site. This led me to cross-check the class Facebook page with LinkedIn. I estimate about 15-20% of my graduating class is not on LinkedIn.

Am I wrong to assume that nearly 100% of students at top schools are on LinkedIn? Feel free to share your approximate school rank and best guess as to LinkedIn membership.

Are you assuming that all of your class uses facebook?

Most who aren't are jobless losers.

Considering how clueless most facebook users are, it hardly seems to be a useful indicator of someone's employability.

Also I don't mean during 1L. I didn't have LinkedIn until part way through 1L, but I can't imagine not having it by 3L.

Not having it 7 months after graduation when you don't have a job is a real head scratcher.
