"I have no great desire for prestige, I just want to leave a perfectly decent firm to go work for a firm that is in a bigger market, has a higher Vault ranking, and is famous for certain kind of work."
It's okay to admit you're prestige-driven, bro. It will make you no different from most law students - who silently judge others based on the Vault ranking of their law firms - and about 99% of TLS.
But you'd do well to put the idea of changing firms in the back of your mind in the meantime. It's unlikely you'll be able to. And it's not the right attitude to have heading into the summer.
I guess I do think there's something a little wrong with being so prestige-driven that you can say, before spending a single day at the firm that hired you, that you'd rather be at one of 10 specific large law firms. Seems like a retarded way to manage your career.
