How would the current crisis/biglaw hiring needs likely impact the classes of 2020 and 2021?

it's hard to compare what happened in 2010 with this year's normal class sizes and guaranteed offers out of virtual programs.
OCI in the fall of 2009 was pretty much a massacre everywhere, with probably more than half striking out even at T10s. But for those that did land SAs, offer rates were close to normal, and the class of 2011 started on time pretty much everywhere. It doesn't seem like we're headed for an OCI that'll look quite as bad as 2009's, but with all of the uncertainty, I also wouldn't bank on being fine (if you define "fine" as landing biglaw, which you probably shouldn't) just because you're at a T14 and/or have great grades.

For those of us who were given offers and accepted, we started at the normal September timeline. The 2008 SA class before mine was deferred a full year, so my class ended up starting before them. It was all around bizarre.
