I hate sounding like a jaded 3L, but yeah - things are rough for law school graduates right now.
A friend of mine graduated in the top 10%. She hasn't found work yet. She's been contemplating opening her own firm. In the meantime, she found a job in the legal field just recently! She's proctoring law school exams at the law school.
I wish the positive, rosy outlook was accurate, but I'm afraid that right now, things are far worse than the numbers imply. Good people are having a hard time getting work. Those who do are happy to accept lower salaries (most of the folks I know who graduated are happy to earn $40-$50k, with some happy to earn even less.). As a matter of fact, I don't know a single graduate in the last two years who landed one of those six figure gigs.
