The diversity of former graduate PI experiences afforded by a class that is 3x larger than Stanford or Yale really can't be discounted. HLS has a phenomenal PI network to build from (as do the other two, obviously), but yeah, I don't understand why everyone insists that each school has one (or two) typical career paths.
First of all, both HLS and SLS are phenomenal for PI work. If you want to do PI on the West Coast, SLS is just as good as HLS, no question about it.
Also, Kretzy's point about HLS' class size shouldn't be understated. Of course there are more folks doing PI out of HLS than SLS - the class is 3 times bigger!
Honestly, the truth is that above-median graduates of HYS can really do pretty much whatever they want except clerk for the Supreme Court (a role seemingly filled by Top 10% YLS and Top 5% HLS/SLS students).
How do you interpret above-median in the non-letter grade system? Just the high pass people?
