are getting a 10k Bar Stipend that is a SALARY ADVANCE.


So it's not a bar stipend then?

Also, who coined the title "Big 5?" Sounds like a way for Jenner and Winston kids to lump themselves with K&E, Sidley, and Mayer. Pretty sure I've never heard the title before coming on this forum.

It is a term I've seen on this forum before, and is widely used on xo.

Also, Hi Mayer 2L SA! Mayer is much more similar to Jenner/Winston than Kirkland/Sidley.

Lol you don't know shit about me bro. But I agree with you about the characterization. In fact, I think the big 5 is a dumb title altogether.

I think we can all agree that in the post-apocalyptic rubble known as Chicago K&E is the firm which is declining into irrelevance the least rapidly, and little else matters.
