And finally...

Iowa - 19.0%

(26/137) (-7.0% from 2016)

BL: 12.4% (17)
FC: 6.6% (9)
Ouch! Why are they ranked so high? Honest question.

US News doesn’t care about this metric but it cares a lot about these three: Medians, resources, reputation. Iowa historically does well at those things.

And it’s worth nothing they also took a significant hit in the US News rankings this year.

And Iowa’s FTLT, which USNews does take into account, is pretty good because it’s the only school in the state and is small, so it’s sourcing an appropriate amount of lawyers for the area and competition for the variety of jobs in the state is relatively low.

I still find WUSTL and Vandy's numbers thoroughly shocking. I thought WUSTL going from like mid-30's to 45% last year was a fluke in part due to a small class that year, and that it would go down, but no, it's going up. Can guarantee you guys that there are no more STL jobs now than there were a few years ago.

Maybe NYC just being hot right now, considering the overall increase in t14 numbers? Definitely going to consider mailing/networking NYC from my t20.

So, to circle back to me shamelessly repping my school, and how the JD-MBA folks skew our BL + FC percentage a few points each year, here are the JD-only numbers:

Northwestern - 72.3%

(159/220) (+1.0% from 2016)

BL: 63.6% (140)
FC: 8.6% (19)

There were 28 JD-MBAs out of a total class size of 248 (11.3% of the class), and only 13 went into bar passage jobs (12 BL, 1 PI). When removing them from the numerator and denominator, NU jumps 3.3% this year. Also, the streak of 0 clerks (federal or state) for JD-MBAs extends to 7 years.

Yeah I mean I’ve been wanting to poke holes in this obsession with BL plus FC for a couple weeks now, as it is somewhat misleading for reasons I have already discussed, and because it lumps together different people into one category (as you noted).

But it’s more or less the law school equivalent of GDP—can be deconstructed and is somewhat misleading, but still highly useful.

Yeah, exactly. It's a good enough proxy to differentiate larger swaths of schools in decision-making. Tougher at the finer details without more.

Also, I think c/o 2017 was NU's last year with the 2-year AJD program as graduates. Wonder if we'll see any difference going forward, since they did OCI like 2.5 months after starting classes in May (not sure how they fared overall, but seemed to do about the same as the JDs in my anecdotal observations).

Oh wow right. Totally forgot about those guys. I am VERY curious about their employment stats.

New Spreadsheet for Nebby's OP

Circling back to the Northwestern JD-MBA discussion, I used the Wayback Machine to get the joint numbers going back to 2012, and made a new row in my spreadsheet for the non-joint JD grads. It illustrates that, for the average law student, Northwestern has pretty typical t13 employment outcomes. Also, the 3% deviation in BL+FC when you take out the JD-MBA grads appears to be typical for NU.
