For pre-law students, the prospect of unemployment doesn’t blot out the sparkle of graduating from an Ivy League school.Pre-law students care more about a law school’s ranking than its job placement numbers, according to a Kaplan Test Prep Survey released Tuesday.
Kaplan got responses from 645 prospective law students to the question “What is most important to you when picking a law school to apply to?”
30-two per cent said the law school’s ranking, while only 8 per cent chose job-placement statistics.
The numbers of the 2012 survey are shocking, since 2011 law grads face one of the worst job markets in years.
