Exit Option Differences between Vault and Non-Vault NLJ250

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Oct 27, 2011 11:09 am

OCI has been good to me. I landed a non-Vault NLJ250 offer in a big Northeast city. That being said, I was wondering--is there really that pronounced a difference in terms of exit options between non-Vault NLJ250 and Vault? I can't see how my job and perks, including wages, are any different than Vault positions but for the (relative) lack of prestige. I know that the TLS echo-chamber tends to be all about Vault, Vault, Vault--the higher, the better. But if during 1L I had taken the advice of the TLS prestige-grubbers seriously, I would've dropped out mid-way. I persevered and landed on my feet. Having said that, I want honest opinions from actual practitioners out a few years who are lurking around if there really is a big Vault/non-Vault discrepancy in legal and non-legal exit options--be it in-house counsel, banking, consulting, etc. Law student and 0L advice will be less appreciated. Thanks!

Northeast city? Whats the firm? It depends on the firm, the market, the practice you want to go into, etc.

Market is NYC. Firm is in Am Law 200. Not comfortable giving out more info. This thread was just to get some general feedback about discrepancies, not what I will personally encounter.
