Here are Cornell & Penn's NLJ 250 Firm Placements for the last 4 years:

Cornell
62% in 2007 (rank 6)
62% in 2008 (rank 7)
42% in 2009 (rank 14)
58% in 2010 (rank 2)

Penn
69% in 2007 (rank 5)
68% in 2008 (rank 3)
51% in 2009 (rank 7)
53% in 2010 (rank 4)

Cornell's avg rank is 7 vs Penn's avg rank of 5.
Cornell's avg 56% vs Penn's 60%

Cornell's class size is 190, and Penn's is about 270. So Cornell's ~4% difference is ~7 or 8 students.


This marginal difference is not worth worrying about IMHO - OP, I'd focus on cost and/or whether you think you'd be more comfortable in Ithaca or Philadelphia.

About 45-50 inches of snow per year.

Penn is significantly better at being in a place that is not Ithaca.


LOL

and for what its worth

HYS
CCN
MVPBDCN
G



IF there were any difference in the "T14" after HYS it clearly would look like this:

Y
HS
CC
NMVPBDCN
GT

Yale is clearly superior to the rest--and NYU should never really be considered on par with Columbia and Chicago--it does seem that CC has some slightly better options than the rest but NYU is higher in rankings than other only because it is in NY....NU is a better choice for Chicago law than NYU any day...NYU is where distinctions tend to become about markets and regions instead of overall prestige or national opportunity

I chose Penn (some $) over Cornell (big $$$) and NYU (no money). My reasons were location, location, location, Wharton, location, my visit to Penn and location.
