so much for UChi being the clerkship powerhouse that tls proclaims it to be.
Um, these figures have nothing to do with clerkships. Not sure what you are talking about.
Wow your deductive skills must have served you well in law school, genius.
schools like yls being ranked so low reflect higher number of its grads doing other things (like clerkships) -- not whether they actually had a lower chance at joining nlj250 firms.
unless you make the argument that uchi kids had the chance at clerkships but turned them down for firm jobs, then the inverse of the above holds true. Ans common knowledge says you don't turn down a judge once you get the offer, so the stats suggest that there were less clerkship offers (perhaps less kids applying, to be fair) for uchi kids than in years past.
