+1, but building off of it, would you say working in biglaw has had an overall negative or positive impact on your social life/friendships/relationships? Obviously, I don't expect you to get into specifics but appreciate any insight you may offer.
Maybe the first couple years, after a while you learn how to juggle things, and how to have a life outside of work. Also, my social circle is mostly other lawyers so they understand when things have to be canceled at the last minute. I think it takes a bit, but you can achieve somewhat of a balance.
