thanks, zack!

my favorite yale stat along those lines:  yale grads represent 0.8% of all LS graduates but 20% of LS faculty.   :D

let's remember that some schools like Cooley have thousands of students (literally)
  • as evident by their 1L class this year of 900+
  • and considering transfers and failures, their 2L class can't be less than 600
  • does anyone know their attrition rate?

Hmm, I don't think those statistics cited above are quite right

Its more like 140,000 a year for the last 3 years or so.......

that's how many tests are administered, but many people take the test twice.

For people curious about these sort of comparisons....

Trying making a graph, using the USNews point totals for each school (USNews, after calculations, ends up with point total that is computed in reference to Yale's.  They then rank schools using the point total.)  Place Yale as the reference/origin, and then see how the other schools compare to Yale, the T14, and each other.  You may be surprised.
