I am in Winston and have never heard of that place... do you know what road it is off of?

You may be asked to do an webcam interview, maybe not thought since it is late in the cycle.

It's on Reynolda Rd. just north of the intersection with Polo.

Looked at those apartments a few years ago when my sister was going to grad school. Not bad but not great. The location is good, although it's on the other side of campus from the law school. I would definitely take a look before you rent. I remember things being pretty dated.

Agreed, they are certainly nice enough, just not as new as many of the apartments around the campus. They are on the other side of the campus, but other than Aspen Way/Park there arent really apartments on the law school side of campus, and the Corners arent any further than any of the other nearby apartments. I will say they tend to be more grad students/young professionals than some of the other complexes and if you care about having grounds with more mature landscaping, they are nice for that. It just sort of depends what your priorities are.

My priorities are proximity to school, low cost, and absence of undergrads. This place may be good for me...

Did we ever get an answer as to why Wake grads last year had such a lower employment rating? New LST just came out and Wake dropped about 10%.

It looks like the underemployment score made up the difference in the overall employment rating. It jumped from 21.2% to 33.3% This is somewhat concerning. I wonder if it has to do with the lower bar passage rate last year...

Well the underemployment score includes those who didn't pass the bar but still :/

If this is the case, then why did UNC's employment stats improve?

It looks like W&L caught up to WF on overall employment this year and has better biglaw+clerk numbers, despite what happened in US News.

Don't forget that they are using different years. U.S. News uses 2012 and LST uses 2013. So you can't compare an increase in LST to an increase/decrease in U.S. News unless you look at the change from 2011 to 2012.

I thought that too...

UNC's stats improved because the number unemployed and seeking actually went down slightly. This resulted in a slight improvement I think. http://www.law.unc.edu/career/employmentdata/

I'm really surprised at Illinois' increase. Now I'm starting to really consider that full ride…….. gotta make my decision by the 14th.

Yes -- but we were wondering why, since Wake is saying that there was problems with the NC bar, UNC didn't have any problems like that...

Do some googling. The NC bar has gotten a lot harder because they bar thinks law schools in NC are graduating too many people. Passage rates for everyone have gone down but lower-tier schools (Elon, Campbell, etc.) have gotten hammered.

Okay but this still doesn't explain why UNC is largely untouched by the difficult bar.

Yeah, I think Wake's Bar excuse is kinda weak. UNC also took a hit in Bar passage. I agree that this is kinda strange.

I mean that's probably just an excuse. But bar passage rates were lower overall this year.

Hmmm.

This doesn't drastically change my idea of Wake, to be honest, but I still think something weird is going on. Maybe it was just a weird year?
