I must say that the resources and support at this school are impressive. Both last year and this year the OCI period was extended well beyond schedule due to increases in participating employers. Last year, summer job opportunities were plentiful indeed, and everyone I know who wanted to work over the summer did so, in every field of law including clerkships, government, public, and yes, "biglaw" (although you will never hear that term used once you start law school). There are clinical programs in criminal, securities, elder, mediation, and a few others I can't think of right now, which are a guarantee of legal experience before graduating. There's also a judicial externship program. Career planning support includes videotaped practice interviews with lawyers, many many seminars and guest speakers, and lots of networking events with the legal community and alumni.
Given all that, any one who leaves this school "unemployable" has no one to blame but themselves.
