I go through all the data available, i.e., self-reported data from TLS, Clerkship data, school-released data, the old clerkship and firm data from 2006 posted on a blog, all the other organizations that release firm data, and a modified version of Brian Leiter's survey of top law firms. Several people disagree with my surveys (usually with cogent critiques like, "that's bullshit"), but even without those Duke and Penn still do better than Virginia in NYC and Michigan does much worse than all three. I've put my case forward several times. Look at my prior posts.
No one wants to comb through your posts and find where you've made this argument. You aren't Al Gore; you can't just say, "Refer to my previous work." I can tell you the problem with your "study" right now: there's no reliable data. Anywhere. Mashing together unreliable data from multiple sources only makes it worse. Did you check for statistically significant differences in your results, or did you just rank schools based on two percentage point differences that are the result of statistical noise?
The truth is that you go to Duke, I go to Michigan, DF goes to NU, Cavalier goes to UVA, and we're all trolling for our schools, which are all peers. How do I know you're trolling? Observe:

C'mon man. Don't pretend you back this tripe with statistics.
