I'm calling BS on this.
A) I doubt you've really looked at many Mountain West firm bios.
B) The sample size of CCN attorneys in big Mountain West firms, who went there straight from law school
will be extraordinarily small.
C) For many/most of CCNMVP, you have no way of discerning class rank from a firm bio. Because of this and the above problem with sample size, you can't do any real study, or even draw any reasonable non-empirical conclusions from what you see.
D) In the good economy, big firms in the Mountain West were going deeeeeep into pretty much all T14 schools. You're not going to find any/many T14 law review folks at these firms. So what are you trying to argue, that these firms took the top 95% from CCN but only the top 90% from MVP?
In conclusion: don't make stuff up.
CCN are, on the whole, better schools than MVP. But again, don't make stuff up.
