I just think that outside of the Big3 and the couple of boutiques, the secondary firms in Dallas are not worth consideration over the V20s listed above. Very few people will ever make partner at any of these firms ... so go with prestige.
Also, I just don't think that you'll necessarily be any happier at LLBL or TK than at GDK, JD, or Weil.
Also, keep in mind that LLBL no-offered the majority of their summers a few years ago (only 4/9 were made offers).
But you do think taking the Big 3 over the V20s is a good idea? I got bad vibes from both Fulbright and V&E, although for different reasons.
I think Fulbright isn't doing to well financially, and the fact that they have a six-week-only first-half summer program doesn't increase my confidence. Loved the people, though.
V&E seems fine financially, but they seemed kind of stuffy (being business formal everyday adds to that). I also got the sense that associates didn't have much control over their work.
