I'm just asking that you run some actual numbers once in a while. Michigan outplaced UVA and all but five other schools in AIII clerkships last year (source). And the inference you might be expected to draw from the fact that UVA self-employs 15+% of its graduating class is that it likely would not be outplacing many T14 schools in general employment if it didn't game the system.
But now that I think of it I see what you did there. You called me out for doing something funky with numbers (when I didn't) and then went on to claim that Michigan had better clerkship placement than UVA. However what you did not acknowledge was that
A. Michigan was only three tenths of a percent higher that year, which is not statistically significant.
B. That this year UVA placed 14.3% versus Michigan at 8.5%
C. Anything that I was saying about big law
So what you're actually doing with the bruinfan account is making a caricature of a buffoonish troll who egregiously engages in what he claims the other person is doing. That would also explain the huge lapses in reading comprehension, ignoring key points in the other person's argument, and the generally combative posts. When you realize what you were doing all along that's actually kind of funny, well played.
So this must be your alt, what's your main screenname?
