I've gone ahead and withdrawn, so less competition! I got into Berkeley -- no chance I'd go to W&M and I don't see money from W&M swaying money from Boalt. Good luck guys!

Well, I have posts on this site about my guessing on how William and Mary works the apps. But, I was just trying to say it really doesn't matter what I think, or what William and Mary does..because I AIN'T GOING TO WILLIAM AND MARY (even if they accept me)

Is William and Mary the ugly red headed stepchild school for everyone applying to the T14? Fair enough, but I actually want to go here. Congrats to all of you that made it to the T14, now promptly withdraw your application so I can sneak in!

Thank you!

It's all relative. W&M is a reach for some, while it's probably a safety for T14 candidates (in the same way that GULC is a reach for some and a safety for T10-and-above candidates).

Very true. I suppose American is my safety for George Washington. But GULC a safety for some is a hard thought to have when I'm trying to sleep tonight.

what are ur numbers that you're so nervous?

btw, even if u do have numbers for GULC, it is still hard to sleep at night. LSN shows a lot of people in the 170s with sub 3.7 gpas winding up in schools like w&m and below while others wind up in the top 5. a lot is based on how u play it so sleep is no guarantee.

Most of those 170/3.7ish candidates choose W&M because they got too generous a merit offer to refuse--not because they didn't get in anywhere better.

Yeah, sorry man, but I'd rather take my $$$ at W&M than sticker at GULC, any day.

This is somewhat dated, but...

W&M is no powerhouse, but barring better options, it isn't a bad choice on scholly.

thanks for that site, man.

$120k 25th percentile - i'd take that right now.

but who is this 56.9% that becomes 96%? what %age of that 96 is in a firm/not just employed in general?

25th %ile of those employed in the private legal sector, which would be more like the top 40%.

Top sixty percent were employed in the legal private sector or had a clerkship (with a 25th %ile, median, and 75th %ile salary statistic of $160,000).

I'd pay sticker for UVA.

But those salary quartiles only represent about half the class, and only ~60% of the class has a known salary range. So you've got to factor in the numerous graduates who were underemployed and didn't respond to the employment survey, which would surely bring the median salary down.

Also these statistics are for the Class of '08, so they don't take into account the recession.

Sorry, not trying to downgrade W&M. It's a good school, and it's LST profile is certainly better than many other schools- but I'm not sure I would use LST as evidence of strong employment in the current economy.

Why are you people so obsessed with the status checkers?
