I think this is probably true for the people that don't go to big firms. The smaller firms don't hire people just to hire people like the big ones. They only hire when there's an actual need, and if they need an attorney a JD probably won't be good enough. I think (and hope) there's some truth to your assertion.The 9 month US News stat makes sense. Of course everyone has a job within 9 months. If I still don't have a job after 8.5 months, I'm working at McDonalds.
Does US News make a distinction as to "private practice" or not?
