In the legendary and now mythical Law-bubble year of 2005, 30s ranked UC Davis/Hastings (these are the same schools right???!) placed almost 3 times as many graduates (percentage wise) in the NLJ250 as the then third tier ranked University of San Francisco.
Let me break down the numbers for you:
UC Davis/Hastings ~16% in NLJ250
USF ~6% in NLJ250
That's a whole 10% difference. Wow! But wait, lets mess with these numbers a bit more.
UC Davistings (see what I did there?) ~84% didn't place in the NLJ250
USF ~94% didn't place in the NLJ 250
So in summary, as you can see, the difference in placement is extraordinary between ranks 30 and the TTT, especially in a really good legal market.
I think those #'s are actually from 2009
