Go look at the aliarrow thread from a couple years ago, the nlj 250 data, as well as clerkship and academia data. Chicago placed more graduates in biglaw than wanted it (leaked data) and also is astronomically good at getting clerkships and is great for getting people into academia. This notion that Harvard is worth considerably more than Chicago with a scholarship, in most cases, is ridiculous. If you ask people who have graduated and are in the field, most would say that they'd take a Butler at Columbia or the equivalent at Chicago over Harvard at sticker ten times out of ten.
stop reminding me how badly I want to go here
