I realize there is probably 1,000+ things wrong with my search that will be pointed out but it really was done as a quick, "back of the napkin" sort of calculation.

Now take those numbers and normalize by the average number of grads that go to CA/West Coast each year, which should tell you that Chicago is miles ahead of the others on your list.
