Uh...all the firms hire one or two people out of the same group of high acheivers. I thought this was obvious. Regardless, you're proving my point here. They're only hiring from the top quartile. But don't expect Illinois Alum Biglaw Partner to tell you that bit of info.
Of course! I'm not arguing that you should go to Illinois over Northwestern. That would be silly. Back to my OP, I'm just saying that unless the NLJ 250 numbers drop dramatically, and they very well might and that's what I'm trying to get a feel for, the school's USNews rankings simply don't reflect reality. However, my guess is that a large chunk of this number is people placed in patent law. Illinois is somewhat known for that. So it could be deceptive.
And it's not one or two people, it was 40 people. Better than any Big Ten school save Michigan.

Where did you get that number?
