39 Wake Forest 11.0%
34 BYU 10.5%
26 Emory 8.9%

Anyone got fresher data (2007-2010)?

Duke, Northwestern and Penn appear to be the best lower tier T14. Any idea on why Duke is doing so well? The Southern thing (i.e. top Southern law firms recruiting heavily at Duke) or some other reason it's outperforming the others?
