As an engineering undergrad looking at the two schools you just mentioned for LS, can you share what they're paying you?

Just about every V50 pays 3K / week for summer associates. The ones that don't are in that ballpark.

This is correct. My UG major had nothing to do with my pay, but definitely counted toward landing interviews as a 1L at all.

Out of curiosity, what sort of GPA/ softs did it take to get BigLaw as a 1L out of a ~T20? (That is, if you don't mind sharing.) Any sort of range/impression would be helpful.

My stats:

1L, T30, SA position for 1L summer at a firm (400+ attorneys).

GPA: 3.9

straight out of undergrad (TTT), no special work experience.

Softs:

non-URM
first generation college student.

Tangential note:

1L friend from Harvard undergrad, T30 law school, top 33%, 1L SA position. But she had substantial research experience, graduated undergrad 6 years ago.
