I know the thread is a month old, but I thought I had to point out an important factor. Many want BigLaw so they can pay off big loans they took out to pay for law school. $160k is nice for a person in their mid-20s. Except that If these people actually land such a job, they seem to think they can keep all of their salary. If you land BigLaw in NYC at $160k, you should come out with just over 100k in net pay. If you are one of those found wanting and are stuck in the $130k purgatory, you can expect to bring home about $83k. Still good pay for a person in their mid-20s. That is, if one no longer requires food, clothing, shelter, insurance, or transportation. The take home pay for LA is similar, but the COL is less gouging.

Thank you for being the voice of reason. NOTE TO EVERYONE ELSE: BEING A LAWYER KINDA SUCKS. MAKE SURE YOU WANT TO DO IT.
