Why don't you call Chicago and tell them that? I'm sure they'll be happy to help out

I have this crazy theory in my head that you two are the same person and you're just trolling us all.

I wish I had thought of that! The things lucky asks though are just too far beyond the realm of sanity for me to concoct.

Also, do the stats break it down further? Like are these NYC V5 offices, or everything? V3-5 have offices everywhere, so if UChi places well into DPW secondary market but not NYC, that may be relevant

There is no particular reason that I can think of for the uptick but you won't hear any complaints. Most are NYC, though we place a ton into Kirkland Chicago too which is probably like 1/5 of our V10 numbers.

C/O 2015 is going to have a higher percentage than c/o 2014's 27% in the V10 fyi.

As I've already expressed to kappycaft1, I don't get why UChicago isn't more open, anyway. The data in the above post, for example... I didn't make the anonymous post I quoted, but if you look at it, you'll see that it's really good.

1/4 students in V10 firms
Half in the V30
Nearly 2/3rds in V50 firms
and only 1/4 of the student body doesn't end up at a V100 firm.

More students end up in V10 firms than don't get the V100 at all. I bet that a large portion of those one out of four students who don't end up in the V100 didn't want biglaw at all, since it seems like about half of the 1L class wants PI or government work. I'm not sure why the school doesn't just share this themselves. Could be some sort of general policy across many schools, since I don't think anyone does share it, I guess.

The way you've interpreted these numbers can't be right, since 75% of UChicago grads don't do BigLaw. According to LST, it's 56.3%: http://www.lstscorereports.com/?school=chicago

I'm guessing the numbers instead apply only to those who are employed in private practice. Impressive nonetheless, but not as impressive as your analysis suggests.

Correct me if I am wrong, but perhaps the discrepancy can be attributed to the fact that the numbers cited are for 2L summer employment and the numbers on LST are for employment 9 months after graduation.

You're missing two key points here george.

1. This is data for c/o 2014 - the LST numbers are for 2012. Presumably things have improved since then. (c/o 2012's summer #s indicate 69 percent were in the V100/NLJ250)

2. More importantly, this is for summer positions, and not full-time post-grad employment 9 months out. Thus, some portion of the ~15% of students who go on to clerk are included in this number. It is also possible that the summer associate biglaw % is higher because of a few no-offers, but I don't know the figures on that part.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but this is how I interpreted the data.

edit: kinda scooped

Oh, I missed that they were for 2L summer employment. That makes complete sense, then.

Is it too late to hope for a CRS-based waiver? I've always been on CRS, but didn't pay for LSDAS until a week ago.

They sent out a wave of fee waivers on 10/31 and it specifically states on their site that they won't grant waiver requests, but there will probably be another wave sent out soon.

Hm, do you think it'll be soon enough to be worth waiting for? (above both medians)
