I want biglaw and want to work in Dallas/Houston/Orange County. Why is that so bad?
It's not but you need to throw in NYC bids anyways. The big class, low grade threshold firms
in NYC are all a goldmine for T14 people
1 summer class for an average NYC firm can easily have as many kids as 3-4 Dallas firm summer classes combined.
There are more SAs in 1 average NYC firm than all of the SAs for all Austin firms combined.
There's a big difference when your summer NYC class has 35 people and your Dallas class only has 4-5.
Kids get those firms all the time, you just need to be in the right schools with the right grades. It's harder then NYC.
Really stupid to not throw at least a few bids to NYC.
