Sadly, I don't have a job yet.  My class suffered a horrible hiring economy, and I was out of the country four a few months so I haven't been looking for a little while now.  Hopefully something will work out before the fall (I still have the bar exam this summer).

As for the site, it's not integrally connected to me being a law student.  Indeed most of the discussion happens here on the pre-law board.  I haven't been "pre-law" for three years now!

can you approximate the percentage of your class who do have jobs?  and is it too early to gauge?

It's by no means a real statistic, but I would guess that about 50% have jobs.  I'd say about 25-30% have jobs at big firms (mostly in NY and Boston).  I don't think the numbers are usually this low; I really think the class of 2004 is the bottom of the slump.
