Thanks. I got a kick out of the responses. I should have learned better than to try to help. I don't make six figures; very few first year lawyers do. And you may be choking on those words when you graduate and realize that you didn't graduate in the top ten and only make five figures, and have three times the debt to pay.
It is truly amazing the difference in peoples' views once they graduate. We have a young lawyer division of the bar association here. We get together for happy hours, etc. It is amazing how many times people tell me they wish they went to a state school and weren't so in debt. I only check this website every few months, and it always makes me chuckle. Thanks for the laugh; talk to me when you graduate and pass the bar. Until then, no offense, but you don't know jack.
As for posting my salary. One day you may also realize that posting all your private information on the web is not the best idea. There are some things that should be private. The first thing I did when I started looking for work was to take down my facebook and myspace pages. Believe it or not, the whole world doesn't need to know everything about you. Whether or not my firm would check on line or not is not the issue. They asked that my salary remain private when they hired me, and I am respecting their wishes.
I'm sure they meant a state school such as UF or FSU, not a school like FIU where the #1 kid in their class makes 5 figures lol. What happens if you don't finish in the top at FIU? LOL
