If you are a Vault Gold Member, you can access Vault's salary survey.  This is the most thorough survey I have seen on the Internet and includes base salary and bonuses for first- through eighth-year associates for many of the large law firms.

Also, YellowBrickRoad, summer associate programs are not "three to four months long," as you claimed in your post that you deleted.  Three to four months is 12-17 weeks.  Most programs are 10-12 weeks.

To answer your question in your post that you deleted, YellowBrickRoad -- yes, I have done a summer gig before -- two actually, during my 1L and 2L summers, and I received offers from both of them.  I hope you have, too, with all the "advice" you are plastering on these forums.  When I said "everything counts," I never said to stress and become anxious over every little thing you do.  If you've ever played sports before, then you know that everything counts in some sense or another.  Like you said, "most" people won't notice if you don't send a thank-you note, but some may.  Also, like you said, sending thank-you notes is the "polite" thing to do.  Then why not do it?

No one said that sending thank-you notes insulates a summer associate from being no-offered, YellowBrickRoad.  However, everything you do from now until offers are given reflects on your character.  Why would you not send a thank-you note?  Can you not spare the few minutes it takes to do so?  You don't know what's going on in the minds of the Summer Associate Committee members you interviewed with, and you don't know what kind of impression a thank-you note is going to have on them.  As I said before, while there are only a few outright deal-breakers, everything counts.

I would wear a suit.  At minimum, I would suggest wearing a sportjacket.

How do you sleep in a car? I mean, Jesus Muthafucking Christ, it's IMPOSSIBLE to sleep IN A CAR. This guy was obviously so wasted he probably didn't even notice he fell asleep. 

I'll simply note here that reality does not support your position.

Are you sure about that, piggy pop?  Your credibility here is kinda shot, after you confidently albeit incorrectly stated a holding in a drunk-driving case.

Just kidding  ;D

Actually the case is Owens v. State, 93 Md.App. 162 (Md. Ct. Spec. App. 1992). You should pay more attention in class because the defendant was found guilty by the trial court. This ruling was then affirmed by the appellate court.

Oh lord.

It's kind of true.  His statement should have been, "You should actually go to class sometime..."

I think "piggy pop" intentionally gave wrong information to make Zagat (the OP) feel better about his case.  Now look what you've done, LOL.   ;D

Haha that was my point, I was wondering why he was in his car with the keys in if his friend dropped him off.  Everyone else just beat me to the punchline :)

Maybe Zagat thought he was sleeping when he was in fact driving?  He was drunk.  "Over the limit, under arrest."
