2012 Underemployment Rates at the U.S. News Top 25 Law Schools
If you're planning to be a lawyer, you may want to look into doing something else. I'm not trying to be a downer or anything, but things aren't looking too bright in the U.S. News Top 25 Law Schools. Just sayn'.
Here are the percentage of graduates who are unemployed or in short-term, part-time, or non-professional jobs 9 months after graduation.
Could this just be a sign the U.S. News rankings
are way off and don’t really reflect the job market? In part, yes. The
magazine’s annual list does incorporate employment outcomes as part of
its formula, and some law firms pay an absurd amount of attention to it.
But after going back through the data and ranking the 25 schools with
the lowest underemployment, I found that only 15 of them could be found
in the U.S. News Top 25. The other 10 included schools like number #76 LSU and number #126 Campbell University.
