I never see MIT as a big feeder law schools. It’s not even on the list. Or did I miss it?

Only HYPSM? Poor UChicago gets snubbed again from the “top-top-top” list. Even when it’s #4 tied with Yale on the US News rankings. I guess all that social prestige climbing it did was for naught. I’ll have to break the news to it.

Yo chill... UChicago is a great school. No need to project your insecurities about your undergrad here. HYPSM is just a common acronym people use.

Caltech was more of a snub than UChicago. How is Chicago better than Columbia/Duke?

I'm a mere social science major, but if the average GPAs and LSATs out of YH are so high relative to other schools, doesn't this tendency for YH undergrads to have good cycles not tell us anything?

You're missing the point of the data. Obviously YH students tend to have good cycles, but the question is whether the avg scores for YH students accepted to top schools is lower than the avg scores of all accepted students in a statistically significant way. If so, that's evidence (but not conclusive evidence) that YH students have an advantage.

Dartmouth is at least as prestigious as any LAC.

Figured you'd be the one to stand up for LACs.

I’m not standing up for anything, I’m pointing out you can’t actually tell when people are being sarcastic.

You think I missed the subtlety of the "TTT"?

I think you can’t resist obsessing about “lay prestige” even when no one actually cares.

At the risk of expanding an icky thread, here’s Cornell’s undergrad 14/15 admissions cycle numbers.

What I'm getting out of this is that Cornell grads apparently prefer HLS over SLS by a considerable margin, unless there's some other reason for that disparity in yield that I haven't thought of. Now that's interesting.

Wait, where did you get this? I'm a Cornell alum (undergrad), so do I get access to this too?

I think he means most competitive law schools for the Harvard/Yale College crowd. It makes sense that that group would have enough of a Northeast bias to prefer Harvard/Columbia over Stanford/Chicago.

An ILRie sent it to me; he got it from ILR Office of Student Services.
