This is not true. People simply has no idea what it means to be in Delaware or practice in Delaware. It's pretty obvious to see that during interviews. I said in other threads to, having ties helps you explain your location choices in a believable kind of way, but you absolutely need no ties to convince someone if you do your homework and research properly.
Saul is still 110. But I wouldn't make too much of a big deal out of that -- you are really trying to predict your salary in fall 2014, not next summer. A lot can change. Your firm could Dewey, or it could land some big new case or client and make it rain on the associates.
What kind of logic is that? The 130 firms may go 145, the 145 firms may go 160, the 160 firms may go 180 by 2014. The 110 is not an absolute indicator, it is a relative one. compare 110 to 130 and 145 and you know where it stands. Salary is derived from pricing, market position, and financial strength. In an economy where most top firms has maintained or returned to market salary yet Saul is still at 110 (remember it went 130 in 2007, with market), you can infer the strength of their practice currently.
If there's anything that can move down its Pepper. 80 slots non-NY! Also be aware of their new interview format.
What is this new format?
