Vault does a Top 100 ranking every year. Many of those top firms are considered "big-law".. probably all 100 are "big-law", maybe except some niche ones.. the top 20 (V20) are the stereotypical "Big-Law" firms like Wachtell and Skadden. they have offices everywhere, are very large, have high turn-over rates for their associates, very little chance of making partner, etc. but they pay at the top of the scale, you get a good resume builder, etc.
How much debt would people say is payable with ease through jobs other than BIGLAW? under 70K .. Under 80k... ??
With a BigLaw job you could pay off a $150k debt in 5 years, although that would mean living on ramen and water most of the year
Journeyman, I am dumbfounded as to how you got into IU and W&L with your numbers. 155 LSAT and you applied to Vanderbilt? Honestly?
Ok so 125K+ is BIGLAWWhat kind of work are you doing at the 85-110K range?
