Wow, Yale and Harvard are so low. Vanderbilt is pretty high, which I love seeing.

Vault surveyed nearly 400 hiring partners, hiring commitee members, associate interviewers and recruiting professionals.

lol

(also lol at the typo)

I wish we could at least see the survey or a list of the firm respondents.

I question the accuracy of that survey.

With all due respect to Northwestern, all other things being equal, a Yale grad will get picked first every single time.

I give them a 180 for the partner comments alone:

Quote
Stanford: "Unprepared and uninterested in private practice; entitled"

Columbia: "Our associates from this school have an inability to see the big picture."

Michigan: "Not impressed"

NYU: "Generally very good, but seem to be developing an attitude as the school rises in the USNWR reports"

Virginia: "Maybe it's the law school's emphasis on softball and beer, but the lack of work ethic shows in recent grads."

NU: "Typically smart, occasionally not as creative as one would hope"

Georgetown: "We've hired several lawyers from this school and they all have poor people skills and produce low-quality work."

GW: "A law school on the rise, but not there yet"

Vanderbilt: "The little law school that could"

UCLA: "The Fordham of the west coast"

And my favorite:

Quote
Yale: "Great lawyers if you can get them to focus on real world business issues instead of how they'd run the country"

Best stuff I've read about law school in at least two years.
