I would include any firm that pays 6 figures as biglaw. But there indeed is a gap between firms that pay 6 figures and ones that pay 30-60k.
People mention BU's big law placement as 18% because thats how many people went to the NLJ 250. The NLJ 250, however does not include Choate, Skadden Boston, Foley Lardner Boston etc. in this figure, which leaves out firms in Boston/Prov./CT that a lot of BU grads go to and make over 100K.
Er... Choate isn't NLJ250, but F&L and Skadden definitely are... I'm pro-BU and all, but you take it a bit to the extreme.
Under the impression (perhaps false) that in NLJ 250 they are only including students that go to that office, so FL in Milwaukee, but not the other locations, etc. But, besides that, there are a lot of firms in New England that pay 100K+ that are not in the NLJ 250:
