1. Can someone tell me more about Fulbright & Jaworski's reputation and any interview/CB tips?
2. If I start at a NY firm (V50), can I lateral back to TX eventually? What are the advantages/disadvantages of NY big law vs. TX big law? Does anyone know if lockstep is better at NY firms to compensate for the high cost of living?
Just speaking to the money: You will be making a lot more money in Texas, initially and probably later on. Even with a less generous nonlock step system. Keep in mind that there are satellite offices in Dallas and Houston that still follow NY lock step (and these people's actual take home CRUSHES NY associates' take home).
