I don't know and only a UCB student could tell you. If I had to speculate -- and I disclaim I am an 0L -- I'd guess the firm diversity issue would be less pronounced at UCB for a few reasons:

1) More students ~300.

2) More students self-select into the Bay which (allegedly) has had two consequences:

a.) a more regional OCI process with fewer east coast/southeast/midwest firms come to recruit.

b.) tighter hiring among california/pacific west firms because the students want to practice in the pacific

3) also, and a lot of this may be self-selection, I don't think UCB is regarded as highly as other schools when it comes to big firm hiring. I also think that's substantiated by Leiter's rankings. This last one though may be fringe and I'm absolutely not trying to anti-troll.

You mean if we assume two schools are equal except one has 250 per class and the other has 350? I'd take the school with 250 for a variety of reasons, one of them being tiny placement boost.

I pulled my ED at michigan in some part (however small) because I felt that being one/370 would hurt me.

I pulled my Mich Ed because they rejected me. :(
