Nobody claimed this. Actually, you claimed the exact opposite. The burden is on you here.

Why do you say Cornell is better for NYC placement? Will the same firms go deeper into Cornell's class than Duke's?


Yes.

Thank you for taking the bait, since this has been a really sweet pro-Cornell trolling point that started being thrown around like common knowledge on TLS somewhere around the time of Cornell's solid NLJ data from last year.

Now please back this up. Not with placement percentages from the NLJ charts, but with real data to demonstrate that "most large top NYC firms" actually go deeper at Cornell. In particular, please walk me through Cornell's absolutely STELLAR 3.74 Paul Weiss and 3.81 Skadden average offer GPAs to explain how the top firms are totesies going deeper in Cornell's class.

You win. Duke is better for everything.

Duke is the correct response.
