Thanks for the inspiration, Decider. Used NALP to come up with this data on Duke Law 2007 grads.

http://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=pBI0tP07AIYvShQwWEOdAbw&hl=en

Fun stats:

171 of 215 grads employed by firms, or 79.5 percent of the class
29 of 215 grads employed as clerks, for 13.5 percent of the class
4 of 215 grads employed in public service, 2% of the class
0 of 215 grads employed in public interest, 0% of the class (seriously Duke 2007, tsk tsk)

Found NALP data for 157 of 171 firm jobs (92 percent)
Average Salary of the known firm jobs: 151.6K
Number of Firm Grads working in NY, NY: 51
Number of grads making NY market (160K): 110
# of grads in NALP firms making less than 130: 11

Estimated Average for all firm salaries: 145.6K (pretty sure I lowballed my guesses, even so, not bad)
Estimated Average for all graduates: 125.7K (this of course includes the GS11 pay for 29 clerks who, after a year, will likely be making NY market + bonus; it also includes 40K guesses for the 11 jobs I have no idea for, including 3 I think are general counsel jobs which should probably be significantly higher)

UPDATE: in case it wasn't clear, i was given a spreadsheet at the ASW with the job/city/state data for the 2007 class. all i did was plug in the name of the firms into NALP, and lookup the payrates for the govt jobs (and google the judges to figure out where they worked).

Just wondering who is going, how interested in the school they are. To answer my own question, at this point, unless lightning (CLS) strikes, I'm probably heading there.

Any worries about living in Durham? Any Blue Devils around to allay/enlarge our fears?

Did anyone here attend this thing? I thought it was great, but this is the only one I have gone to so far, so that may skew my perspective a little bit. I found the presentations professional, the class (and mock class) interesting, and the students and staff I talked to friendly and easy to talk to. Of special note was Bressman's presentation on the value of clerkships post-law school. The man could sell ice to Eskimos.

Anyone else have any other thoughts or perspectives?
