the conclusion is undisputed. my point is that the fungibility stems from the inability of any law school to teach you how to be a litigator. you seem to think otherwise. either that, or i don't understand your point.
Biglaw doesn't hire from top law schools because of their training, they hire them for their supposed intelligence, by virtue of the fact that they got in. same reason goldman sachs might hire a humanities major above a certain gpa from princeton for example, or mckinsey might hire a sociology major from stanford who doesn't have a clue about the industry.
