NALP Directory Question
« on: April 12, 2008, 12:47:57 PM »
What does it mean when there are numbers in parenthesis?  I.E. It will have the number of summer associates for a particular year as 10(2) for 2L's.  Does that mean these folks split the summer?  Does it mean they were 2L's but not graduating until for two more years due to being PT or getting a joint degree?

I always understood () to indicate SAs who split their summer.

if you find an nalp firm that hired 100% of their 2L SAs for the year, usually the number of total hired associates is the number of 2L SAs plus the number in (). 

Ex) 2007 2L SAs = 15 (2)
    2007 2L SAs offered employment = 17

someone correct me if i'm wrong
