Shearman v. Polsinelli

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Sep 29, 2010 12:10 pm

Hey everyone,

I'm originally from the midwest, but I went to Fordham for LS. I was lucky enough to get a SA offer from Shearman in NY, as well as an offer from one of the big midwest firms. I don't know that much about firm life, but I've heard that big NY associates have a pretty stressful life, and that most don't make partner. However, in the midwest firm, I have a feeling I could make partner and the money would be pretty good for the midwest.

What are your opinions? If a NY firm associate doesn't make partner, what do they do?

Do not go to Polsinelli. They remain a second-tier firm in their primary markets (KC and St. Louis). I worked at a firm in St. Louis and Polsinello and Stinson bore the brunt of a lot of bad jokes.
