And when did I ever dispute this? I think it's general knowledge.
Your second sentence confounds correlation with causation, however. Maybe people interested in PI are drawn towards NYU because of the programs.
Regardless, I don't see how that point is relevant. I don't care either way. If people want to do PI, then fine by me. If people don't want to do PI, then fine by me.
Umm... that is causation...
To be fair, it could be correlation and not causation. Your reasoning is just wrong.
