This message is for those who are qualified to attend top five law schools (HARVARD, Yale, Columbia, New York, Chicago). I am seeing a trend of big law going after the top five-percent of both state and some private law schools. Big law is looking for value in their new hires, in other words big law firms would rather hire people from schools like the University of North Carolina, Minnesota, and Richmond who graduated in the top five-percent of their class because they can get every bit as much production but for less money. This is not say that one should pass on a top five law school, but one should think about it.

oh god

As a top 5% student from Richmond, Fuck you. I don't want no pancake mix.

I am sorry you feel that way, but you will start seeing more and more top-five talent creeping into your school :lol:

OP: most people here know that biglaw pays lockstep salary- they don't get anyone cheaper or pay less for grads from other schools; and, most people know that going to any law school where you need to be top 5% to get a job is suicidal.

You seem to have no knowledge or experience that is useful here. You look like an uninformed idiot to be honest.

First, I am not a troll. Second, I do not hate Stanford. Third, I am being serious.

That isn't professional at all, and everyone doesn't make the same money.

The pay scale for big law is actually fairly uniform. You don't have a bunch of first-year associates making $160,000 and others at $120,000 from lesser schools.
