Pride by Proxy

As of today, I can boast that I have had students* who have gotten into the following top-ten law schools (listed in order of this ranking):

Yale
Harvard
NYU
Chicago
Virginia

An outlier had been Chicago, where, despite the fact that it is where I got my PhD, I had never had a student accepted. (I had had one or two wait-listed, but never outright accepted.) That changed today, when a student of mine, who had already been accepted to Harvard and NYU, received his Chicago acceptance. 

I have had students accepted to many other fine law schools, though, to my knowledge, to none of the other schools in the top ten. (Students: If I am misinformed or misremembering, please let me know!)

Congratulations to the students!

*I count only those students of mine for whom I have actually written letters of recommendation.
