This is not at all fair to WUSTL. I've said before that WUSTL is probably a little overrated when looking at biglaw. But the difference between our NLJ rank and our USNWR rank is like 5 or 6 spots. The difference between IUB's is at least over 25, maybe more. Not at all a fair comparison.
Pre-ITE, we were placing like 1/3 of our students into NLJ firms or clerkships that lead to NLJ firms. IUB was at what, like 10-15%ish maybe? If even that?
