Got my offer on the last day and finally exhaled. Mama will have gainful employment post-JD!! It's one thing to know that it's likely coming, but I was still sweating a little. Good luck, everyone!
Frier IS Tim Gunn. The look, the voice, everything. Well, Tim would never wear those sweaters, but maybe that's just his cover. My 1L year, we kept waiting for him to walk in and say, "Law students – make it work!" Also, he's not a JD. He has a PhD in Classics, and he'll still whoop your ass in Contracts. I heart him.
Also, I hate packing.
Also, how am I already a 3L? It goes fast, my friends.
Good luck on that drive tomorrow! tell my roommate that I love her and I'm excited that she's finally getting out of the worst professional baseball city in the US!
I'm in M! No Clark or Primus, but no 8:00 class!
You can pick the money or the title; never both.
My school is T3, not a T4 -- get ir right. And maybe I don't know how it goes as far as the search in T14 ... but half of all new BigLaw associates are gone in five years, so maybe it's better that I don't. SO ... you're saying you can be a lazy, unaccomplished boob and still make top dollar leaving a T14. If that's true, that's horrendous.
Give the emetophiliac a $35K bonus ... now!!
A lot of us are choosing $145k in secondary markets or boutique firms, but literally any of us could have the $160k if we can get through a cocktail party without vomiting on a partner.
Then it drops to $130k but no bonus
MNC = multi-national corporate firm ...
Well, if some top schools don't do hard rankings and obscure things for the sake of selling the name brand, I guess that must be a contributing factor to the startling BigLaw attrition rate.
And another thought: The class sizes at T14s in a lot of instances are much larger than at the Paces ... my class started out at 187, and Harvard and Michigan, to name two, have classes three times that size with very little defection. So the the pool of T14s competing for BigLaw gigs seems like it would be pretty wide.
