however, their medians for starting salaries for both general and public interest are giving me pause. for such a highly ranked school i was hoping for a little higher medians. i suppose their averages may be affected by the fact that such a large proportion of their graduating classes go into clerkships. i guess this is really a sticking point for me right now. looking at the website for many biglaw firms, i've yet to find a single UR grad. not that biglaw is something i am actively pursuing, but having the option may be nice. can anyone speak to where exactly UR grads find employment? midsize firms? government?
What salary medians are you referring to? I am seeing 100k/per year for private sector (which is of course ridiculous anyways).
