Also, are you sure you're not letting yourself become biased by a small # of a$$holes you met at Chi? Just sayin...I have a few friends @ Chi who are really chill & sociable, and I think a lot of Chi's rep is overstated.
MVPB is not a category that exists. B places like 20% of students into biglaw via OCI. Penn places like 50% (both pick up more via non-OCI channels obvi, but still)
In the long run, your chances of high level clearing are better from Chi but your chances of career mobility are better from Penn, both because the alumni network is better and because the school credential transfers more easily to non-legal fields. Again, what do you care about? Your answer should determine where you go.
On your first comment, B does fit into MVP more and more, esp since they are second to only S on the west coast.
And yeah, regardless of how we define MVP or MVPB, we can still agree (I think from your 2nd comment) that Chi LT is definitively >.
