You were talking about non-elite schools, sure. But you said those Iowa kids who got big law would have got big law if they had went to Drake. The full 15%. That's nonsense you silly billy.
Yeah you might be right but I dunno. I also said the schools would almost swap employment numbers. I think Iowa has a better alumni network, and maybe the random joe or two gets a gig with a firm because Iowa doesn't suck, maybe.
So maybe the Iowa caliber Drake kiddos achieve 12% biglaw, not 15%. There is no way to know for sure. But people on TLS downplay the effect humans have on all this, prolly to manage their fragile egos. They cant suck if everything around them is a scam and not based on merit.
