Hmm, it's supposed to show up to everyone. I'll think of something.
Three school types:
1. Prestigious National Schools (good for BigLaw, clerking, academia)
2. Semi-Prestigious Regional Schools (good for BigLaw in their area)
3. Your Local School (good for Personal Injury work in your area)
Any other distinction is meaningless. For the record, I throw Bloomington into the third category, despite what US News tells you.
The strange thing is that you could pay these young associates 120k and they would still be ecstatic. There's no need to put it at 160. It doesn't even give an incentive for people to study harder, because law school is a zero sum game, anyway.
