No you didn't give me the source.  You said that you believe the source was cited in "law school for dummies" (certainly a reputable publication if there ever was one).

You'll have to excuse me if I don't drive to the bookstore, find the citation, drive to the library, look up the book, and make a copy. 

It's as reputable as any other pre-law genre book. 

Your unwillingness to verify a source is not evidence of untruthfulness on my part.  Try looking at alternative sources, get creative, do a google search.

True, but your inability to specify anything more than what your friends said and what you saw in a pre-law book doesn't make me believe your original claim either.

I cited an authority that amounted to more than hearsay, which is more than half the people on this site do when telling someone information about law schools. So why is it that a study I cite in a much less important context is all of the sudden unacceptable authority?

You said there is a study -- that's all. 

It's like saying that there's a poll.  But how am I to know how the poll was conducted, whether it was scientific, what the sample was, etc. 

Knowing that somewhere out there a study exists doesn't prove anything.  And it's not like all I have to do to find it is google it.

Regardless, I don't think we're going to come to some agreement about whether it's a good idea to stay with a sig. other in your first year of law school, or to plan a future with a sig. other included.  I suppose everybody just has to make up their own mind.

Sleepy, salary stats are useless.  I have to assume the salary market in Georgia pays a lot less than the northeast where Uconn grads end up.  Emorys numbers are amazing for that percentage of southern placements to be factored in.

I like Uconn, and will go there if i get in.  but im not dying to get to Boston when im done.

The biggest market for Emory grads is NYC.

Not true - the majority of Emory grads work in the South - the biggest market is Atlanta.

The largest market for Emory is NOT NYC.

41.6% remain in GA, with 37.5% staying in Metro Atlanta
25% in DE, DC, FL, MD, NC, VA, SC
18% in NY, NJ, PA
