BigLaw is not a lifetime gravy train. Most people are in it for 3-4 years and go take something much lower-paying.
I know this to be valid, but what percentage? I have only met younger associates, and many put the time horizon at 3-5 years. Is there reliable (or not reliable for that matter) data on salary distribution for biglaw-bound grads over time?
