Downtown is kinda dead (although it's started to pick up in recent years). I'm personally not a fan, and unless I'm going for a specific purpose (eating at a nice restaurant, going to a play) it's not somewhere I've ever been inclined to go. Shadyside is really the go-to place.

What about Lawrenceville?

Up-and-coming area. A lot of great shops, restaurants, and bars. It's the undisputed epicenter of the city's hipster community, but a lot of hip-minded professionals live there as well. So as not to derail this thread further, if you have more questions about the city, I'd be happy to answer them via PM.

What does everyone think regarding the accuracy of the following statement: If you start in Pittsburgh, expect it to be a life sentence to the city, or to another small legal market. There is a stigma regarding lawyers who start in smaller cities -even if at a national firm - such that it's doubtful you'll ever work as an attorney at a larger firm in NYC, Chi, DC, LA.

If that is true then I believe all 4 have begun making offers

I know RS and K&L have both extended the majority of their offers.

Any word on some of the others in town? Specifically BI, ML, C&G, Thorp, etc.?
