Does anyone else's firm offer this, or is it not standard practice?

It is standard practice for most biglaw firms. Usually $2-3k.

Really? When do you get it? And what is it for?

April. So you can put down a deposit for an apt, buy a plane ticket, a new suit, or whatever.

Does "start-up bonus" = salary advance, and is this something that we get to keep or is it coming out of our summer compensation?

"Bonus" suggests it is additional compensation. Why don't you ask your firm?
