Well if NYLS is intentionally not including salaries to bump up their median salary, then that's a new level of toilet school fraud.
That's exactly what we are saying. Theres a whole debate right now going on about how BLS reported their median salary is $ 112K. I've been out of Bklyn for a while now and let me tell you - I can count on my FINGERS the number of classmates who making over 100K right now. The ones who are are usually in big firms (which meant they were at least top 25% of their class) or lawyers who started out in small-law and lateralled to mid-law after practicing for 3-5 years.
