Eh. Penn is a huge feeder into NYC biglaw, moreso than M or V. That alone probably warrants at least a scenario where T7 includes Penn.
the V trolls will be by shortly to discuss V's ownership of the 4th circuit
I think you can make a case for HYSCCV, I'm just saying it's not a no-brained that T7 would be M or V and not P. Or D for that matter, I have a feeling it's going to out-place MV or B this year. Yeah, I said it!
D is going to out-place by virtue of its small class size?
I'm not saying it will happen, and don't really have evidence beyond a gut feeling to back it up, but it's a plausible scenario in my mind. I think a big thing is that the go-to market for Duke is NYC. Remember that most law students aren't saavy with bidding at OCI. Many of my friends don't all read TLS and know that DC is harder to get than NYC, or that you shouldn't bid in CA without ties, etc. When you're talking about aggregate placement, this factor becomes important and having a NYC focus like Penn and Duke will probably help.
