First of all, I personally spoke with the person who was in charge of the survery which resulted in those statistics. ONE person did graduate and started at $500,000. As you can see from the stats, 6 people were in the $100,000-500,000 range. Also, the big assumption you are making is that ALL law students want to work for a huge firm. WNEC has an outstanding clinic program along with a mock trial team that frequently makes the national championships. Is WNEC highly regarded nationally, not completely but it is making advances. Will you be able to teach at Harvard with a WNEC degree? probably not. Can you be an excellent practioner of the law with a WNEC degree...absolutely. As with any law school, a person should make a choice based on their personal preferences. If you prefer a quiet, supportive, friendly, cohesive, yet challenging environment WNEC is the school for you. I attended a Tier 1 school for undergrad and the education I have received at WNEC is of much higher quality than that school. Don't be so quick to dismiss it unless you have attended there.
