Moving Out of A Tertiary Market?

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Jun 21, 2011 10:50 pm

Assuming (based on 1L grades) that my target markets, DC, NY and Boston are going to be locked out to me, I'm looking for advice on taking BigLaw / MidLaw in a tertiary market (Nashville).

Assuming I have an "in" to Bradley Arant's Nashville office and a better "in" to Bass, Berry and Sims would it ever be possible to move into a BigLaw NYC, DC or Boston firm, assuming I can get a good rec from 2L summer and grades are better 2L year, or does taking a job in a tertiary market sound the deathknell for primary markets?

Looking for legitimate advice here.
