It will say,

your rank / class size.

So like,

48/231.

Generally speaking, how many students in the top 24 transfer out?

The best information I could gather pegged the number around 6 students per year.  Something about those on law review sticking around but those who just missed it leaving.

I have no clue what the economy will do to transfers this year.

So, all you upperclassmen, how bad is it really in terms of the job market right now coming out with a Tulane degree?

Big firms have cut hiring to a trickle.  Biglaw isn't a given even at top 10%.

Market is within reach of top 20%, but I wouldn't feel comfortable without 200+ resumes (and even then you might strike out).

Sub-25 attorney firms are, as always, a crapshoot.  Obviously grades help, but connections within the firm are significantly more important.

No matter what market you want to land in, send applications to NOLA firms.  They are still hiring and <3 Tulane.

Seems like we have a large number of folks transferring this year from the 1L class.

I think I've heard of close to 10 putting in applications, if not outright transferring.

I've heard the same - however i've only heard of a few successful applications thus far. To hell with all of them!

IMO - our class had a large # of people who didn't particularly care for New Orleans or Tulane and were from larger metro areas. Plus, I figure the pressure to transfer up in the current economy is higher than in previous years.

Hey guys, I am transferring in as a 2L this coming semester. I know I am lazy, but combing through 274 pages is not my cup of tea. Any suggestions on housing that is pet friendly. I want to bring my dog, but she doesn't have to come if I can't find pet friendly housing. Thanks guys, look forward to seeing you in August.
