my boyfriend is at a t-20 school (good grades, LR)... right now he has 2 offers for next summer, one from a V5, one from a V10... a bunch of callbacks take place in the next few weeks, ranging between V5 and V60+. between the 2 offers, he got better vibes from the "less prestigious" one, and probably the best vibe from a callback in below the V50. ultimately, is there a big difference between V5, V10, V20, V50? is it really best to pick off prestige, or to choose based on where you see yourself fitting in best (and making additional visits to the firm).
also, with the NALP 45 day policy, if you haven't heard from a firm at the tail-end of callbacks right before you need to let another firm know, is it okay to mention your exploding offer?
