does it matter if it makes sense?
That's all fine and good, if
it's true. But it isn't. I mean, in order for what you're saying to be correct, you have to establish that there is in essence a "vast west coast conspiracy" which is keeping Stanford in the top 3. Then you have to explain how this is possible while considering Stanford's relatively small class size, which leaves fewer alumni out there to help the "vast west coast conspiracy." There are some other issues I'm sure, but if you don't get the point by now you never will.
So tell me, if you were admitted to only Brooklyn and Stanford, and wanted either a BIGLAW job or a clerkship with the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court (himself a Stanford grad), which one would you attend? (Apparently Stanford travels pretty well for a "regional" school.)
