So are you saying all of those NYLS grads who are employed were in the top 10 % of their respective classes? Please. I think many people on this board loose sight of the big picture. At the end of three years we will have law degrees. A law degree, no matter your class rank was, and no matter the rank of the school, opens up many more doors, period.

Nice picture but time to be serious again lol. Take a look at Martindale.com. NYLS grads seem to be well represented.

Why are you hating on NYLS so much. They have a pretty good employment rate at 9 months after graduation and an average starting salary of about $80,000. Are these numbers fabricated? To be quite honest, I am considering NYLS but am somewhat skeptical due to the high lelvels of criticism towards NYLS on this board.

There are plenty of schools that do not attempt to weed out ANY part of the class. NY Law happens to have a pretty high attrition rate.

Is the curve cause for concern? Is it responsible for a percentage of the students being academically dismissed?

I notice that New York Law has a slightly harsher curve than most schools. Do you feel like the school attempts to "weed" people out or is more of a supportive environment? With the Comprehensive Curriculum Program I am surprised that anyone could be dismissed for academic reasons. Any comments on that?

Great. Can you comment on the job prospects in general? Is there alot of on-campus recruiting? Where do most of the graduates go? How has your experience been thus far?

I totally agree. I have heard people on this board make such accusations as the statistics were made up or those that account for the employment rate were not emplyed in the legal field. I agree, those accusations are obsurd.

Do you attend New York Law by any chance?

Thanks for the encouragement. However, if I fail to finish in the top of my class at NYLS does that make me "unemployable"?

I am interested in going into a small-midsized firm or government agency out of law school. How are the job prosepcts at New York Law? Although I hear alot of criticism towards New York Law on this board, stats show that 93% are employed by 9 months after graduation which is not bad.
