“What happens at Dalton receives surprisingly extensive coverage in New York Magazine” is how I remember my fancy private school days in the 1990s.

This figure from the paper exactly illustrates this -- if you're a conservative grad of an elite law school, you have basically have a much higher probability of becoming a judge (of any kind)

I will actually say that the only professor I had whose political opinions I found *obnoxious* was a biology professor who interjected a lot of off-topic ideological considerations into what should have been a boring science class.

"Hanson … sees sexual assault as something that contemporary society is irrationally over-invested in punishing." That's not remotely true! I've never taken a position on that topic, though I will now estimate that we underinvest there.
