How much better is CCN than MVP?

Postby Cassius Sterling » Sun Nov 07, 2010 3:24 am

From every perspective (career prospects for big law and government, overall quality of education, et cetera), is there a significant difference between Columbia, Chicago, and NYU and Michigan, Virginia, and Penn?

If you can be specific, please do (e.g. top X% of MVP get jobs in biglaw whereas top X% of CCN get jobs in biglaw).

Thanks.

Lol. It does beg the question. More specifically two I suppose: how much better than CCN is B, and how much worse than MVP is B?

Cooley, Charlotte School of Law, and Nova Southeastern all have better international and entertainment law programs while Mississippi College, Valparaiso, and Phoenix School of law all have better study abroad programs.

They've all got good Moot Court teams.

All I've got is Internationaler Bund der Konfessionslosen und Atheisten e.V.

Which I can totally get behind. I'm actually filling out their membership form right now.

I'm just assuming that means something like... "In Before... Knowledgeable Answer"? That sounds wrong though.

Exactly 2% better.

This is not how legal hiring works.

I left out Boalt because I am not considering it. I do see where you could have gotten the idea that I was "trolling for B," though.

A greater percentage of CCN students are getting OCI jobs compared to MVP. While it's not as simple as "top X% CCN = top Y% MVP", roughly 50% at MVP is getting biglaw compared to 65-70% at CCN.

I feel like there is definitely an appreciable difference, but I doubt anyone is going to be able to tell you anything better than, "CCN places 10-20% more in big law." I don't think that the differences are great enough to necessarily override other considerations like geographic preferences, lots of money, or just a sense of attachment to a certain school. There's a difference, but who knows how much.

Maybe it was subtle Northwestern trolling.
