I am writing the NY bar in Feb. and seriously considering to apply for LLM's with Sept 09 start. Post LLM, I am aiming to find something, not necessarily legal work, in New York / California.. but now I'm a bit worried about the lack of employment opportunities.

Has anyone decided not to pursue a US LLM this year, or deciding against applying for LLM's next year.. in lieu of the Lehman financial catastrophe and credit crunch in general?
