I'm sure this has been debated, but I'm currently on the F U Browser 2.0 that has search disabled.

But anyway besides social and other tertiary factors does class size affect class rank and job placement in a negative or positive way?

I'd say a larger class is for ones advantage, but I want to hear what others think. My theory would be if you have 100 people, despite individual stars, it's harder to land in the top 20 (20 raw spots) than if you have 400 people (80 raw spots), and by association with OCI cut-offs it'd be harder to land something despite competing against more people.

I want to hear what others think 0L, SA, practising attorneys alike.

(by class I obviously mean graduating, not classroom)
