so it looks like UC Hastings beat UC Davis not only in the US News rankings, but for biglaw placement this year too. it was a larger gap than i thought. both stats are on their websites and both seem very legit because they have percentages and numbers.

-UC Hastings places about 23% in 500+ lawyer firms and 1/3 of class in 100+ lawyer firms.

-UC Davis places 15% in 500+ lawyer firms and 23% of class in 100+ lawyer firms.

-both have the same percentage in judicial clerkships.

i messed up big time and will be applying to UC Hastings next cycle.  :-\

Hastings rules the seas

Bear in mind in terms of raw numbers its more impressive to place 23% out of a class of 400 into big law than it is to place 15% of the 250 or however many Davis graduates each year.
