You are in denial with reality.
I was giving you an example upon which I challenge you to draw a conclusion from it.
The college you attended and the major in which you earned your degree often are taken into consideration
The college you attended is THE MOST ****ING IMPORTANT THING OF YOUR LIFE, INCLUDING GRAD SCHOOL ADMISSIONS.
Also... On a side note:
The acceptance rate from A-Z school to X school isn't really relevant either. Because that's STILL a correlation and not a causation. If you assume that the more intelligent students go to the more highly ranked undergrad colleges, then you're obviously going to get disproportionate representation of students from the top colleges at the top graduate schools. Simply because the more intelligent students went to the top school, which means that, if they continue to succeed in college, as they did in HS, of course more students will get accepted from XZY school, if XZY school is, say for instance, HYP.
Cal, Johns Hopkins, MIT and Michigan are going have a lower percentage of pre-law students than universities with large A&S and most LACs.
