influence in government

Postby anstone1988 » Thu May 10, 2012 10:35 pm

Does Harvard blow Yale and Stanford out of the water in terms of alumni in the US government and foreign governments? Even after adjusting for its bigger size, Harvard seems to be leagues ahead in terms of # of senators, representatives, attorney generals, cabinet members, high level officials in foreign governments, etc.

Harvard has a larger class. I'm too lazy to figure out a ratio between number of grads and people in government, but I'll assume I'm right because I'm gonna be a lawyer, bro. Also, Wikipedia is not a comprehensive list.

Harvard beats Yale by a little bit when controlling for class size. Stanford isn't even close.

The prestige of Harvard Law and the influence of its alumni network are unmatched.
