I highly doubt that applies to all attorneys in all markets, but he was sincere when he said proximity meant everything to him. Who knows anymore. We all pretend to be experts, but the truth is that we pay an extra 100,000 dollars for that three second moment when, as someone is reading your resume, they see a name of a school. How they respond is totally subjective and circumstantial. When schools are that closely ranked, it seems to me that we're going back and forth indefinitely because it's an unsolvable quandary.

From what I hear, lots of people say that the best advice they received is to go to the school and see how it feels. If you like your atmosphere, you'll thrive in it. Better grades, happier, and transitions in life are easier. Makes sense to me.

You really fucking think that I'm going to complain about doing less work and getting paid 160k (if I'm that fortunate, G-d willing), you are out of your fucking mind.
