I take it you're defining Biglaw as the NLJ 250?
There's actually a debate on another thread about this. I suppose there is BIGLAW and then SUPER BIGLAW, but, generally speaking, most of the NLJ 250 pay the top market rate or very close. It's a useful shorthand, especially when you are talking about having a job that gives you the ability to pay back law school debt.
I am glad others found the story useful. I did too.
