What firms did everyone end up at?
« on: November 12, 2007, 08:44:47 AM »
So what firms will everyone be working at?  If you are concerned about anonymity, just give a ranking (V5, V50, etc.).

Landed a firm gig, I'm not sure if it's in the V100 for prestige, but it's in the top 10 of Vault's Quality of Life rankings.

I landed a biglaw gig which sounds similar to what craven got (non V100, but in QOL rankings and paying market)- 2ndary market.

I'm probably going to a V30 over a lot of higher-ranked options--I just love them, and they were cool about letting me split my summer with a specialty firm.  Making the call tomorrow.  :)

Going w/a V60 over a V30; very tough call, geography tipped the scales.

Big-law, Non-vault, market salary in secondary market.  A regional firm with high marks in a couple Chambers categories, and reportedly, excellent QOL.  I must be at the same firm as Raven and craven. ;)

I'm going to a V40.  Surprised I got it considering that a partner who interviewed me had never heard of my school before.

Big law, non-vault, Vault top 20 on every important QOL issue though, NY market (not in NY though)

I am following Cooley's lead with law schools and re-ranking firms though, and on my rankings my firm is number one (the only factors were whether it accepted me and whether it paid well).

I'm surprised so many of you are also picking the QOL firms over the prestige firms. I figured I was going a bit contrarian in picking non vault over V30, but clearly I am not alone on that decision  :D
