Default To squat seperatly or after Olympic lifts?

For the past 6 months I've done 2 different programs where I'm:

(1) Squatting on separate days
(2) Squatting after doing the Olympic lifts.

my squat numbers were higher when I was squatting on separate days...but I have to admit I prefer to squat after doing the classic lifts...I like the volume and hard work it takes to gut through the squats when your legs are already fatigued.

At the end of the day I want to be a better Olympic lifter than a squatter...but would I achieve a higher total if I squat on separate days...since I'm lifting more weight that way?

thanks.
