Of course everyone is going to respond self-selection, yada yada... but I don't think that explains the almost double rate of partners Chicago has over Stanford. There can be tons of reasons for this, but, at the very least, it tends to undermine arguments that those who want to be lawyers should forego scholarships to schools like Chicago over HYS.

Edited to add: That thing about using your own money from savings to cover part of what sounds like close to full-boat at Stanford makes a difference. That should be added back into your cost of attendance, although you wouldn't have to add interest to it.


I am legitimately surprised that Cooley didn't make the list considering the reputation of some of those other schools on there (not much better) and the ridiculous number of grads Cooley sends out every year.

Oh my b. We throw the colloquial name around so much that I forget that it's not actually the full name.
