What?!! that is absolutely not true. Top ten percent at UNC will get you interviews at most v10s except Wachtell. Top 50% at cornell will absolutely not get you interviews at Cravath through Cleary.

Hate to break it to you, but FALSE.

Cravath, Davis Polk, and Cleary all extended callbacks (i.e., these were not just screening interviews) to Cornell students with anywhere from a 3.33-3.53, which is approximately the top 30-50% of the class.

I don't have the data for other V10's, but it's probably similar

Adding to this, the BigLaw options for top 50% at Cornell are as good or better than the options for top 10% at UNC

What?!! that is absolutely not true. Top ten percent at UNC will get you interviews at most v10s except Wachtell.

You have claimed that top 10% at UNC get interviews at most of the V10 minus Wachtell. Just to re-iterate how uniformed you are, I have listed the number of UNC grads at some of the V10

Sullivan and Cromwell- 0
Davis Polk- 0
Simpson Thacher- 1 (p.s. Cornell has 31)
Cleary Gottlieb- 1
Cravath- 4
Covington- 3
Latham and Watkins- 4
