I heard from a lawyer not long ago that deal size really matters in how much you get paid. I'm assuming that if a transaction is international and it's handled by a biglaw firm, it must be big, if nor enormous?
Um...In the United States, the city of Houston has the second highest number of fortune 500 companies (NYC has the most). So, I believe it is safe to say that TX firms deal with all forms of companies.
OP - if you want to go to Fordham, go to Fordham. But for the purposes of employment, Fordham isn't better than UT.
As to your other statement, your pay is based off of what the firm told you it was going to pay you, and there are plenty of smaller international transactions that are handled by larger firms.
Oh, don't please don't misunderstand me. Personally, I like UT better than Fordham. It's just that my college friends who are at Fordham now told me that Fordham may be better than Cornell for NYC. So that really gets me to start this discussion.
