I mean, the conservative estimate (intentional high-end estimation for class size and participants) for CLS EIP is that 27% of participants accepted offers with V10 firms, so I'd say it's a pretty healthy amount.

I can PM you more tomorrow if you're curious, but from the very limited information I have, I think it's around 15-20% going to the V10 from Penn. So probably around a 10% difference, which is offset because of the amount of people we place in Philly biglaw.


Cool, I'd actually be interested in seeing what stats you have.

Just PM'd ya.

For anyone wondering, it seems theres about a 9% V10 placement difference between Penn and Columbia (27% vs. ~18%). Makes sense to me. As I mentioned in a PM to Bronck, it could also be said that only about half of Penn's class goes to NYC and DC (where the V10 are clustered) while its more like 3/4 of Columbia's class thats in NYC and DC, so maybe self-selection also plays a small part in this difference. But I think we've basically confirmed that the supposed V10 placement advantage of Columbia (and NYU, and maybe Chicago too?) is real, but (IMO) not enormous, and not really a reason to pick 1 school over the other.

18/27 = 66%? CLS places 66% more EIP participants into the V10, right? Am I crazy?

That is a big plus for Penn (for some). Going through v5 associates law schools didn't paint that picture but I'll be the first to admit I was very lazy about it. Also, this analysis had me thinking otherwise.

I wish this data was available to the masses.

Probably you are just very bad at math.

No dude you're doing it all wrong, it's 27-18 / 18 = 50%. CLS places 50% more. Duh.
