TCR. OP, no one gets a job anymore in biglaw. Just the other day I was in Manhattan and I saw Herb Wachtell and Marty Lipton leap to their deaths while a crowd heckled below. Midtown was a hellish scene, as recently laid of junior associates fought like dingos over discarded bagel remnants while security guards handed them their office tchotchkes in boxes bearing Skadden and SullCrom logos. The former office shrews were resorted to pimping their plump, pasty bodies somewhere in the outer boroughs. The lucky senior associates and junior partners could be found enjoying King Cobras and passing out in the gutters. However, I saw the naked body of a young junior associate in an alley, his Jos. A. Bank suit had long since been looted for halal money. A 24 year old ibanker walked by and spat contemptuously. So yes, Biglaw is dead; I recommend killself.


174 -- Good imagry.

Biglaw exists, though not in the way it did pre-ITE.

But you should get your timing straight. For the most part, biglaw recruits at OCI, which happens at the start of 2L year. So it's not based on when you graduate*, but when you do OCI. Thus, you got less than a year, really, for things to get better.

* Except that a collapse between OCI and graduation can screw things up. So you tend to get the downside but not upside of changed economic conditions between OCI and graduation.
