Thanks! UT had their median jump to 160k and their clerkship rate is pretty excellent. But Minnesota is free. This decision is going to be difficult to make in a week!
UTs median is DEFINITELY not 160k.
for C/O 2012, 26.4% of the class ended up in firms of 100+. Those would be the ones paying 160.
I mean, there is no denying that UT places better than UMN. But they are fooling you by not putting the
*% of class that reported data
on that 160 stat.
I was really incredulous but that was the info they gave us along with their ABA data for class of 2012. Granted, they can only report on info from respondents but they got about 80% of the class to respond. Mean income was 122k but that's pretty useless b/c of that whole bimodal distribution.
LST uses the same data, and im just not seeing how 40% of the class is making 160k. As for the mean... It may help a little if we were to assume half the class is making 160 max, and then the others that reported would make about 80k average. Most of which would be in the 60-100k range.
Im just staying on the subject because Im from Texas (grew up in Dallas, was living in Austin), and was considering UT in state too.
Anyway, good luck with your decision!
