From this thread: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=140477#p3709952

ToTransferOrNot wrote:Employment prospects coming out of Wisconsin are really bad right now, even in Wisconsin. The Milwaukee legal market is pretty terrible; I know top 10% people who were waiting tables their 2L summers to supplement their summer clinical participation.

Now, I'm in CO 2011, so things are improving - but not by much. Foley & Lardner is the only relatively large firm in Wisconsin, and Foley is doing really poorly. From the friends I still have at Wisconsin, CO 2011 is looking at 70-75% unemployment at graduation: and that includes all employment, not just people missing biglaw.

No idea how much better CO 2012 did or how 2014 is going to do, but it's not pretty right now.


Anyone know any different?

+1.... wtf does that mean?

I read it and it looks like a generic email they probably sent to all applicants... did anybody NOT get a scholarship email?


Received the email link as well... It had me convinced for the entire day that they were strongly considering me! Soo, its a let down to know that it was sent out to a bunch of people. Arghh - at least the other day was nice. LOL.
