I'm glad that my school has a good proportion of non-trads. It seems that a lot of BigLaw firms seem to prefer students who went to law school immediately after undergrad. I don't know if they consider them more "trainable" or more likely to fit into that type of culture for some reason. What do you guys think about that?
Also, did anyone see this article about Summer Associates making as much as $3K per week? http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/07/23/AR2007072301890.html?hpid=sec-education&sub=AR
Now, I don't mind that in theory, but it does bother me that this is the first real world experience a lot of these interns have, and I think they come out with a skewed sense of reality. Can't stand the entitlement either. Found that firm's motto "When Experience Matters" a touch ironic as well.
