That post was absolutely ridiculous.
Unfortunately, posters pretending to be “V-whatever Associates” are not a rarity. Yesterday Dailygrind banned a bogus poster for pulling everyone’s chain. Given your idiotic post, I wouldn’t be surprised if you are that same poster going anonymous.
Please do not come back and claim you “really are” an associate at a firm. It would be way too laughable.
Absolutely nothing surprising about this.
HYS students have a much easier time finding BigLaw jobs. HYS also offers more non-BigLaw options for its students. When I was at a firm there was always the question of whether or not an HYS student was looking for a well compensated summer on their way to other employment post-grad. The very top one or two people at T100 schools are pretty much always at least as good as your average HYS student, but there is not the same culture of seeing BigLaw as 2L summer-only activity.
People who are there just for a summer paycheck are not generally going to gun the same way someone who believes the fate of their legal career lies upon their performance. With HYS students you are almost always going to end up with some BigLaw tourists, which winds up making the group's performance less uniform than the top 1 or 2 students from T100 schools, who seldom have tourists amongst their ranks.
