For the life of me, I cannot understand why so many seemingly intelligent and ambitious people continue to perpetuate and regurgitate (if thats how you spell it) this oh so popular opinion that working 60+ hours a week at BigLaw is the only option and absolute end-all if you want to work BigLaw.
I realize that not everyone is not extended the priviledge of going to school at a top 5, 14, 25 or even 50 school. Those individuals are unfortunately *&^% out of luck. However, for those of you who promenade the campuses of such high pedigree schools it is my contention that given the number of firms that visit the schools you attent, you have or can get adequate information about their quality of life thus affording you the priviledge of snobbishly turning your nose on any firm that might want you to work such inhumane hours.
