Nothing wrong with those schools but that's how you lose Fortune 50 clients.

It may or may not.

Yep, CovingTTTon matched a week ago. WilmerFAIL is the Covington of this cycle.

Lol at firms being okay just hiring regional law school kids.

Wilmer will match because it won’t be able to attract Harvard kids in Boston without a match. Plus, the random UVA kids from the area won’t consider Wilmer if it’s below market.

BC/BU students do fine getting associate positions, but most partners at these firms are Harvard grads.

They won’t be “fine” not having Harvard grads.

They deserve a spot on the shade list for trying to keep DC at $160k in 2016.

Does anyone ever stop to think about how dumb this job is? Like I just spent my whole weekend drafting documents and then woke up at 5:00 to keep going. What a life. My firm hasn't even matched yet.

You’re delusional if you don’t think some partners would be fine to make that trade to keep extra money in their pockets.

WH full match with summer bonus (tied to annualizing at 2000 as of 6/30) -- opportunity to make it up if you hit 2000 by end of year. Effective 7/1, bonuses paid 7/25.

I don't think you understand what the Dayton office is. It doesn't have associates and partners like in the other offices. It's more of a career attorney location with more reasonable hours and the expected lower pay scale. There wasn't anybody making "market" with their "class year" even before the M-STB-CSM shakeup.

I think we can all agree now that Boies is the most egregious offender of the remaining firms that have yet to raise salaries.

Can anyone confirm the full WH match? Not seeing it on ATL yet. But the site is so poorly organized that it is possible I'm missing it.
