Um, any reason not to work for them if you're saddled with debt, want biglaw and have no other offers?

I'd work

84 hours/week for 160k; AND they can whip me whenever I blink the slightest. I'd still have a grin from ear to ear.

I don't care how bad the job sucks--if somebody's willing to pay you that kind of money, you suck it up and go to work there. Only time i'd think twice would be if I had a better offer from another firm like Cravath.

It's even more dumb when the OP deletes the question and nobody benefits from knowing what the stupid question is; opening the forum up to another debate about this by somebody else who didn't see this.

Question was basically "should I work at Kirkland?" with no other information, poll was "yes/no"

And with more people likely to get interest from Kirkland, chances are pretty good somebody else is going to ask the same exact question.
