yeah as a 0l who has spoken with many attorneys, if you can make the top ten percent at a tier 2 or even tier 3 school you are going to have a lot of opportunities. you should take biglaw if you can get it. not only does it pay well, but it provides you with invaluable experience and looks great on a resume. it would be to a lot of people's benefit to stick it out for a few years. thanks for the article. it talks about how associates are in demand, is that just for biglaw?
