No, I didn't, but the blogsophere has scooped the story for a few weeks now.
RIDICULOUS. I want the 20 minutes I wasted on my OCI interview back.
It is not better than what USNews provides, just more. Without the USNews info, this info would not even be able to be placed into perspective. Making choices about law schools based only on numbers (incl. either or both of these sets) is plain stupid. They are both useful tools; nothing more, nothing less.
Employment prospects should be the most important metric that people are using for law school. People often forget that it is an investment. It is not a prestige badge that allows you to say that "I went to school so and so." Because the degree would be worthless if you dont have a job after you step off the graduation stage.
With employment stats, US NEWS fails miserably. When they start differentiating between a waitress job and a corporate lawyer, then I will take it seriously.
did anyone else pick up the fact this chart was from 2005?
just do well, get in the top 1% of your class, and your fine from almost anywhere
okay, so i kid. but seriously, i dont get what people still don't understand. go to a T10 and be in the top 2/3 of your class. go to a t11-t14 and be in the top half. go to a t15-t30 and be in the top 1/3. don't go to anythign below that unless you get significant scholarship money.
see, wasn't that simple??
