-The hype about SLU grads being preferred over WUSTL grads seems slightly overexaggerated. Yes SLU was very well represented, but not as well as WUSTL as far as post-recession associates. Maybe there would be more WUSTL associates if SLU didn't exist or something, but WUSTL was still better represented in general. (Minus Hinshaw & Culbertson)
I am thoroughly surprised SLU is able to place grads any where. The term TTT gets tossed around a lot around here, but SLU is about as close as any school can get. Maybe I'm being harsh.
Well I think it would be hard for SLU to place grads outside of Missouri or St. Louis. But it seems like the law school and university in general are well-regarded in St. Louis and the immediate region. And a lot of law firms apparently view WashU law students as flight risks that will likely leave to another firm in a more desirable city at the first chance they get.
