Harvard has at least as strong of an alumni network, equal job opportunities, but also has a better reputation outside of the legal profession. As proof look at the Supreme Court: there are 6 Harvard alumni and 3 Yale alumni. Even if Yale is better academically, Harvard still seems to me to be a better value... even if I'm not really competitive for either one lol.
The Supreme Court is not exactly a great sample there, bud.
But there are other examples as well! Take members of successful businesses, or professors, or those who attend class reunions of prestigious universities! Everywhere you look, Harvard is better represented! Coincidence? I think not.
You're right. It's not a coincidence. It's because Harvard is over twice the size as Yale. Divide those numbers by average class size and you'll get a different conclusion.
I tried sooooo hard to avoid this response by including "those who attend class reunions."
