But maybe I'm just cynical because everyone I know who got a job through EIW is in or close to the top third.
Well this is unsettling
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do not listen to retarded anecdata when you have real numbers available. Here's data from Section 5 (my section) from the class of 2016 (which nickb is a member of, but he's in section 4 I believe, which actually appears to have done even better than US): https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... 2137162564
At last count, 56% of my section did biglaw during their summer (spreadsheet excludes only 4 year students from the total, as they could not have done EIW with us). And this is a minimum as there are a few people in the total whom I just don't know very well and so listed their status as unknown.
The vast majority of people who did EIW/otherwise tried for biglaw got biglaw. And the class of 2017 (from all indications) is doing even better.
Use your fucking brain, people! Do you really think that Georgetown's going to do WORSE than it did in the c/o 2014 (which did EIW in fucking 2012, and where 50% of the class had biglaw or federal clerkship) than it will NOW, when Biglaw hiring is rising yearly?
