I don't think more WUSTLers are going to get more (numerically, not percentage-wise) clerkships from grads of other schools just because WUSTL has 5 or 6 more people in the top 10%. WUSTL used to be much smaller - the number of grads isn't proportional to the number of alumni out there. I'm not trolling for the school, I'm just telling you that I don't think that it's solely because of the TTT effect.chup wrote:stratocophic wrote:WUSTL has more a larger student body than all 4 of the other schools, and there are a finite number of fed and Art III clerkships to go around.

I'm just saying, the numbers are very similar for the Chicago area schools (aside from ND, which is living up to its rep as placing well in clerkships w/ the network). There are only so many clerkship positions to go around. Do you really think that judges would be inclined to take 1.5 times as many WUSTL grads as Illinois grads? What about when you consider the fact that many of the judges those graduates directly compete for are likely UIUC or ND grads? And you're attributing that to the fact that there are a few more WUSTL grads with better grades, which is due solely to an increased class size? C'mon.
