What do you do? How did you get the job? Class rank at graduation? You meant dollars, right?

What exactly are you bragging about? Pretty much everyone on this forum makes 60k more than you, and that's only if they're 3 months out. even my firm was late to the salary raise and i still make about 30% more than you

are you repping your school? your outcome? your job? i don't get exactly why your humble-bragging


Edit: and yes, I live in a low COL secondary/third market

I can do you one better....I know of someone who had a sub-150 LSAT, somehow got in and graduated top 10% at a T1 school and now works at a V20 firm making the new market salary. Their picture is next to "exception to the rule" in the dictionary.

Very nice...how did they get into a T1 with below a 150?

You are the exception. Congrats. I will still tell the person with a 150s LSAT and 3.2 GPA about the unfortunate reality of attending a TTT law school. Especially if such a person doesn't have rich parents and/or strong connections in the legal field.
