NYLS, which is a tier 4 school, boasts an average (or is it median?) starting salary of 95K. Granted that's higher than many similarly ranked schools and is probably a function of its downtown NYC locale; but I think most tier 1 school students who finish in the top 1/3 of their class must have at least a fighting chance at 100k or thereabouts. At least this is how it seems from everything I have read. Cardozo claims an avg (median?) starting salary of 101K, and they are Tier 2. Maybe I am wrong, but I don't think 100k is an unreasonable expectation for moderately successful students at T1 schools.--Africa Bambata
most law grads don't get biglaw jobs that pay market
also, ask any law student or recent grad. the schools are bullshitting the numbers on employment and salary. they were even messing with the admissions numbers, which is why when usnwr changed their methodology this year they were pissed.
