Law School Rankings / US 2009 Rankings 60-100 scan?
« on: March 27, 2008, 10:52:46 AM »
The PDF floating around of the 2009 US News scanwith the detailed breakdown for schools 1-59 is great, but I haven't been able to find a scan of the next page (which you can see part of in the scan). I'm interested in comparing a few schools that are on the next page, which I believe should be page 47 in the book. If anyone has seen or has the scan, could you direct me to it?

Thanks!

I saw two old threads on the topic, with Rutgers getting the vote of confidence in 2005, but Seton Hall getting the more recent vote (2007). Seton Hall's got a terrible rap on another unmentionable forum, but has risen in the rankings while Rutgers has declined significantly since the late 90s. I'm looking for feedback specifically if the costs were slanted in favor of Seton Hall to the tune of $5k less per year.

I found these private practice job statistics, and despite the 2007 post recommending Seton Hall, it appears Rutgers' placement is better. However, as I believe something like only 50% of the class responds, not sure how valuable the data is as it is probably highly manipulated. My goal is private practice in either mid or big law, preferably in New Jersey, followed by New York.

Seton Hall - 39% of the class is in private practice.
26.47% of the 39% are at firms of 2 to 10 attorneys with an average salary of $53,191
16.18% of the 39% are at firms of 11 to 25 attorneys with an average salary of $62,841
5.88% of the 39% are at firms of 26 to 50 attorneys with an average salary of $73,125
8.09% of the 39% are at firms of 51 to 100 attorneys with an average salary of $85,136
6.62% of the 39% are at firms of 101 to 250 attorneys with an average salary of $107,167
7.35% of the 39% are at firms of 251 to 500 attorneys with an average salary of $133,000
9.56% of the 39% are at firms of 500+ attorneys with an average salary of $135,385
18.38% of the 39% did not specify the size of the firm
1.47% of the 39% are self-employed

Rutgers-Newark - 45.1% of the class is in private practice.
11.96% are at firms of 2 to 10 attorneys with an average salary of $62,400
3.26% are at firms of 11 to 25 attorneys with an average salary of $77,500
14.13% are at firms of 26 to 50 attorneys with an average salary of $88,231
10.87% are at firms of 51 to 100 attorneys with an average salary of $87,333
25% are at firms of 101 to 250 attorneys with an average salary of $122,474
8.7% are at firms of 251 to 500 attorneys with an average salary of $140,000
25% are at firms of 500+ attorneys with an average salary of $141,739

Thanks for your help!
