last year usc and ucla were comparable
that is what I meant by the usc and ucla difference, I wasnt accounting for all clerkships.
but for all usc is 4 percent and ucla is 8 percent

Okay I'll cede that there is a difference here for placement between USC/UCLA. But I still go back to my point that it doesn't make sense to pick between UVa/USC based on clerkship placement since there are other things that are much more likely to happen that are more relevant to the decision.
This is the same reason that people shouldn't recommend random T2 school over other random T2 school because one placed 5% into biglaw and the other placed 10% into biglaw. Because it is so rare, it becomes immaterial compared to the other differences between the schools.
