If Stanford became a little more selective in handing out acceptances, maybe they can accept more people who doesn't seem to favor the east coast and big law on the east coast. If the east bias is that apparent to law students then it should make more sense for them to do more to try to attract people out west. Give money, recruit heavily, take the Feb score (:)) etc.
People turn down H for Darrow? Is Michigan that good?
1) Michigan is that good.
2) No debt is very alluring to a lot of people.
3) If you want BigLaw, Darrow at Michigan seems to be TCR over Harvard.
Also, Stanford can't be that much more selective with who they admit. Their acceptance rate is already the second lowest in the country (behind only Yale).
