Experiences are going to be all over the place depending on the exact school. There’s a pretty fast drop off outside the top 14 from a national reputation. That said there are a number of schools between 15 and 30 or so that have very strong regional presences (BU/BC in Boston, fordham in NYC, Vanderbilt in the south, etc.). Those schools trend in the 30-40% range going to large firms depending on the exact year and school. You go below that level and it starts looking…. Well rougher. I went to one of the Boston schools, graduated close to 10 years ago. Can honestly say almost everyone in my class has solid jobs (say 150k+) - some went to law adjacent. Starting to get a decent number of big law partners as well - I’d guess the class will end up with 8-10% big law partners, large number of in house, and a large number of boutique firms. Experienced outside of biglaw are much less standard and are much more like most businesses - do well and income can go up fast or be mediocre and it stagnates.
