the majority of NYLS grads who work in NYC (which undoubtedly, they do because of proximity) usually work in quasi-legal or non legal jobs, and the ones who do find something in the private sector, its usually a low paying PI/ID firm paying $35-45K/year (see http://nycdefensefirms.googlepages.com).
I'll be damned, wiimote making a positive post :p Well, the $110k a year is only with 32% reporting, but still - 110k mean for the top 30% from a T3 school
Based on their US News stats, you could be doing a lot worse. I would recommend NYLS over schools like Loyola, Denver or Hofstra.Also, check out their alumni list. It includes supreme court justices and founding partners of biglaw firms. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_York_Law_School#AlumniNYLS------------------Private sector (25th-75th percentile): $60,000 - $125,000Median in the private sector: $110,000 wowPercent in the private sector who reported salary information: 32%
there's your answer why the median salary for private sector is so high. haven't you heard the saying, "99% of statitics are bullsh*t" ?
