MissP - Brooklyn get tons of bad press on other sites for poor job placement. Do you see many of those complaints among the students there?
Frankly, no. I know people who have federal clerkships and biglaw jobs and government jobs and non-profit jobs, and they all seem pretty happy. I do know some people who are still looking, but then again, I have friends at Yale who are still looking too. None of them seem despairing, and they are all pretty confident they'll find something based on their experiences in the job market thus far. Most of my friends are top-half, on a journal or moot court, but not necessarily top 10%/LR/etc.
I do hear a lot of complaints that the career services office is overly focused on placements in big firms and therefore ignores people who are at the bottom of the class. Since I have never once met with my career service advisor (there's a dedicated public service person to whom I would turn for any advice or assistance), I can't comment on this too extensively.
