Are you surprised that highly selective undergraduate colleges whose students had strong high school academic performance (predictors of college performance) and standardized test scores (pre-COVID-19; predictors of future standardized test scores like the LSAT) have relatively more pre-law students who can put up strong applications to highly selective law schools? Or that large state flagships have top-end cohorts of students who are similar in this respect?

Only non-top 50s were UConn (Yale), BYU and Alabama (Chicago). And UT and Illinois in the 40s (Chicago). I thought Wisconsin might make the cut at Chicago or The Ohio State with huge classes and proximity.

Columbia does well for having a small Ivy class.
