He might be one of the folks for whom Yale over $$$ *might* be warranted (I don't have enough info to be sure) it sounds like. I was just curious. Only if he had said "oh y'know just going back to my V10 like normal" would I laugh.
Nelson--most clerkships aren't worth a quarter-million dollars. There are plenty of people who could clerk and don't because they won't pay even the $50k-ish (after-tax and clerkship bonus) penalty it costs to clerk. I think your statements indicate that you haven't thought seriously about these choices.
Yes, clerkships have no benefits besides the $50k bonus after leaving for a firm, Jesus Christ. Clearly, that is the only reason they are so highly sought after.
that's not what he's referring to when he says $50k-ish, genius
Whatever, misread it, sue me.
i will, and i'll win because i went to yale.
