Small white collar firm, formerly V10 firm, before that NYU.Have you come across a wide variety of new associates? Is it clear that students from the ivy schools are far more prepared (or just intelligent) than other students?
Is your firm starting to grow again? (I'm not gunning for biglaw, but I'd like it if Columbia and NYU students would stop applying to the mid-size firms in my city)
Do you have friends with law degrees who took a different career path, and if so, do you envy any of them?
The students from lower ranked schools tended to seriously kick ass there and are just as prepared as the other students. No comment on my firm growing. I have some friends who went into consulting or public interest, don't really envy that. Kinda wish i did a clerkship
