I think salaries also vary fwiw but it's meant to be a cheap way for firms to hire an associate for a year and salaries start at 40K I believe (I doubt anyone is making more than 50-60). I also can't find stats as to how many people stay with the firm, but it's probably too early in the program to tell.
I'm not trying to say don't go to Cardozo at all because I'm considering it- this is just one aspect of their stats that makes me curious/worry.
Just did a quick search since I'm bored at work: https://cardozo.yu.edu/news/cardozo-law ... -graduatesRAMP jobs offered to recent graduates have increased almost four-fold since 2013, when the program was created. In 2015, 130 employers partnered with Cardozo Law to offer jobs through RAMP, and to date, 33 students from the class of 2015 secured jobs through the program.
Using the* 2015 disclosure -- 33 out of 362 or approximately 9% of the 2015 graduating class were employed through RAMP. I'd imagine that eats into the Employed # breakdown whether it's bar passage required or other.
My guess is that these are people who are in the bottom of the class.
So top of the class gets big law, the bottom of the class gets ramp program. What's the consensus on people who hang out at the middle?
