Saw dashrashi's LSN site. Since she seems to use profanity, one could say that HYP does not necessarily mean class or refinement.

You are part of the problem, not the solution.
I'd also like to throw in a plug for secondary market firms. Recruiters were much nicer and more prompt at firms that interview, say, 30 people per year for 10 spots, as opposed to mega-sweatshop firms that interview 200 of the best and brightest for 10 spots. I had nothing but good experiences with places in my secondary markets.

One person isn't going to change it -- and certainly not someone with my credentials. If I were a SCOTUS clerk turned BigLaw partner, it would be a different story.Many of these partners have golden handcuffs. I am somewhat sympathetic to their problems with mansions in the Hamptons and third wives.
