Usually it's not the people at the bottom of my class that don't have jobs; apparently it is usually the complete socially awkward people that talk about clearly inappropriate things and come off as abrasive.
This year there aren't many 3Ls without jobs, but there are a decent number of 2Ls with nada. This year it's the awkwards, the bottom of the class, the people who applied to too few firms, the people who applied to only one geographic area that was subsequently hit hard, people who accepted callbacks with firms that subsequently pulled the plug on the summer program, people who only wanted to do very specific legal work at firms, etc. So, while I was being flippant, it is by no means just the bottom of the class that is unemployed this year.
I disagree with the statement on 3Ls. At my school, most of my friends are unemployed, and this includes those with top grades and great social skills, the middle of the class, and the bottom of the class. I only know a handful of people that have jobs lined up next year, and they had summer associate positions or were able to land a federal honors program. It seems pretty dismal at our school for the 3Ls
Modified to say - I only bring this up because at some schools the employment situation is really bad, and maybe even worse than the 2L's. I'd really like to see the employment statistics for my graduating class.
