k did some research myself it looks like columbia has 45 students from their 400 person class size make law review, chicago has 30 from their 200 person, and nyu has 47 for their 450 person class. So just based off percentages it seems like chicago's is easier.
Although it also seems like more of chicago's is based off 1L grades.
Is it a pretty safe assumption that the same proportion of students at each school wants to be on law review?

No, but I don't know how you'd gauge that.

Somehow I doubt that it varies by a substantial amount from school to school in the T14. The people who are less likely to care about law review may also be less likely to qualify for it anyway. Every school has a contingent of people who are not on LR but probably could have been if they had tried.

This is just random musing based off of comments i've heard from various people.
