It looks like I'll probably be at a V10 (or V15, whatever) next summer so I can compare the experience.

A senior associate in the Dallas market said local firms trying to entice law students with NYC lock-step salaries often have worse hours because the firms bill clients at lower rates, thus attorneys have to bill more hours to justify their salaries.

I thought, this makes logical sense. Done. But given that billable hours is only marginally aligned to actual billings, is this reality? I've kind of written off a whole class of firms that seem to do a middle market, volume business while paying $160K through the highly scientific analysis of guessing what is bs on their website and making broad generalizations. Any counter examples?

whats the point of anonymizing your humblebrag if you are going to be that specific? You have advertised before that you are 1L SAing in Orange County, and only one firm there fits that profile

The constant tension between needing TLS to validate how prestigious you are and trying not to get outted.
