We can't simply ASSUME (which is what you're all doing) that so few folks from U Mich decide to go to CA. You know what assumptions do.
You absolutely can assume that the percentage of Davis grads trying to get jobs in California is much higher than the percentage of Michigan grads trying to get jobs in California. This isn't science, it's a business decision. And if you refuse to include factors you can't quantify in business decisions, you will make bad ones.
That is neither here nor there.
Again you bring assumption into the mix.
Where's the proof folks?
Hey. I'm talking to you. Sometimes you have to make assumptions in business decisions. That is a statement that is both here and also there. Are you really asking for proof that more Davis grads try for California than Michigan grads?
