It's the NALP's buying power index, which rates cities based on their average salaries and buying power relative to $160k in NYC. Basically there are 46 markets whose COL and average salaries make them objectively better places to live and work after LS than NYC.

Hmmm.....there go my Hawaii dreams.

Goodbye Honolulu, hello Los Angeles.

Sad to see Miami ranks lower than NYC. I'd love to go back after LS but not if the money ain't right.

I'm pretty sure it used to be higher in past years. Either average salaries are dropping or COL is rising, or both. I think the average salary used to be higher, which reflects the fact that there are basically only a handful of biglaw-paying jobs in the city. The NALP stats for Miami biglaw firms are truly depressing. Hiring is straight up anemic and has been for a couple of years now. The bounceback we're seeing in other markets hasn't made it there yet.

Good to know my goal to return to LA is also financial savvy.

Worse comes to worse I don't mind putting an ocean and a continent between me and my family.

Though I'd imagine the 3 or 4 people who get biglaw gigs in Miami must feel like millionaires.

Those numbers are actually way closer than you might think.

And yeah, they probably feel pretty baller.

Aren't a few of the world's most livable cities in Australia? I'd just go for the weather + accents anyway.

Australians are better. End of story.

Also, these forums make me feel old sometimes - I feel like everyone is still in UG. How old is everyone?

Gurl sit down. I pretty much guarantee that I'm the oldest one here. I was a teenager when BSB, N'Sync and Britney had careers!
