Rather not. There are a number of people from my school that are on here and I know that info would pinpoint me.

Sorry. I guess if that ends the conversation, so be it. I'll keep occupying my time with reading debt ceiling news.

We have already ruled out Cravath and Wachtell. No way in hell you would be allowed to use a computer for personal use before 10PM.

Am Law 100 = top 50th - 75th
NLJ 250 = top 50th - 75th

Difficulty: Pretty mixed. Some projects are mind-numbingly tedious (i.e. looking up applicable regulations in the CFR for a lower-level associate). Some are pretty challenging (i.e. qui tam complex litigation issues). At no time, though, have I felt overwhelmed.

Intellectually stimulating: Of the dozens of projects I've worked on, I can think of two that were thought provoking . . . in the sense that they raised deep, legal and/or policy issues. The others have not necessarily been boring, just not overly profound. As an SA, you don't exactly get the "creme of the crop."
