The name has cachet with those firms, but biglaw won't touch that many cornellians. When kids from NYU show up at those firms for interviews they are viewed with suspicion. The firms assume they will jump to biglaw just as soon as they can. Not so with the cornell students! So more of them get a foot in.
Where are you getting this from? Seems like baseless speculation to me. The leaked data from the 2010 and 2011 classes doesn't really seem to reflect this.
+1 could you provide some backup for this?
I am bored and accordingly can refute this. According to the OCI data that was leaked to ATL last year, 12 members of Cornell's class of 2010 went to non-Vault 100 firms, and 5 of those firms are not NLJ 250 firms (and accordingly wouldn't effect this survey). So roughly 105 of the 112 Cornell students at NLJ 250 firms in this survey are at Vault 100 firms. So 54.7% of Cornell's class of 2010 went to Vault 100 firms.
You could get ahead on the Fed. Courts reading.
On a related note, I go to Cornell and will be working at a non-Valut 100, NLJ 250 next summer. However, I don't think it is because they think their firm is beneath higher ranked schools. There will be 4 times the number of Harvard students as Cornell students in my summer class.
