NU, Duke, and Cornell all have worse LST stats generally (although they place more into biglaw, which is largely due to Michigan students self-selecting into PI), and Michigan is one of the more transparent schools in the T-14 in terms of honesty in reporting job figures.
Unless the "no" is because Michigan tends to throw most students at least a little something in terms of scholarship dollars, so if you go without you're likely a bad negotiator/not a great candidate. That I can get on board with.
Ok.. let's assume that 100% of PI is self-selecting and those students could have totally found firm jobs if they wanted. Adding up FedClerk+BigLaw+PI gives us these results:
Cornell - 77.9%
Duke - 73.3%
Mich - 67.8%
Northwestern does come in at a paltry 62.7%, but if we're being fair about self-selection we should probably replace PI with Business for them, resulting in 67.5%. They probably have more legit JD advantage than usual, so we probably still need to adjust upwards a bit.
Not sure where you're getting this "worse" LST stats thing..
