I graduated in 2013. At that time, approximately 33% of the grads had biglaw/fed law clerkships at graduation. According to lawschooltransparency, that number shot up to 45% for the class of 2016. If true, that's incredible, especially given that WUSTL had a reputation as a trap school (I did not dispute this upon graduation). Also looks like WUSTL reduced its 1L class size from 300 to 220. Good for them.

That math is sound. I was thinking the current class has a much higher chance of making big law. More room for error for each student.

Nothing's changed... except you previously needed top third to get Big Law now you need median.

guess law school didn't teach you critical thinking?
