Mr. Perry, 37, became a career associate at Orrick after unsuccessfully seeking public service work (which would offer the option of loan forgiveness). But he says he loves his “lifestyle job,” which enables him to work from home and spend time with his infant son while still doing interesting work.

This is depressing.
TBF, he a) is much older even by NW standards, b) graduated during the time all the shit hit the fan, and c)seems generally satisfied with the job he found. However, I assume he'll be on IBR for 25 years.
ETA: Also, his grades, prior work experience, etc are unknown. The NYT has a penchant for picking law grads that aren't very representative of most. See: their story featuring the guy that went to Thomas Jefferson School of Law, a super shitty TTTT, and *shock* couldn't get a job.
