Yep... Things are slowing to a crawl... and the longer I look at this blue and yellow portfolio, the more I think about crossing over to the dark side... :(

Come to the dark (Blue) side, JustE. :)

ETA: FWIW, UMich also posts their NALP data on their site and I thought it was helpful to compare NU's and UMich's for those of us beginning to wonder away from the Force. :lol:

NU - http://www.law.northwestern.edu/career/statistics/
UMich - http://www.law.umich.edu/careers/classs ... stats.aspx

*Spoiler* The differences between the two were negligible imo. (NU is still #1 in my heart.)

Man, it's tempting... I've always wanted to go somewhere with a huge football culture... I also got a car for Christmas (gift for school) and I'm not so sure if it's a good idea to have those in Chicago... This will be tough... (that's if I get in... please let me in, N.W.U....).

I haven't looked at them closely, but weren't there some concerns with Michigan's data? Like they framed it to camoflage some weird holes in the salary stats or something?

As bdubs pointed out, Michigan has a 53% reporting rate this year, compared to NU's 88%. So...I guess it's NLJ 250 or bust at UMich.

Oh man... yea I guess last year was pretty rough at Mich. Only 211/374 reported salaries. Thanks for pointing that out.

Yeah... A bit concerning... It's just nice to be wanted... Being held puts a bad taste in your mouth... It was certainly expected, but slightly disapointing all the same.

Oops, probably! I wasn't sure if all ED applicants had received some sort of decision yet. This is the exact text of the tweet:

For clarification, today's decisions are for the regular JD (non Early Decision) Program.


Yep... still confusing
