I could only target one major market city for personal reasons and was having no luck. I gave up on big law after getting what seems like a couple dozen rejections and focused on smaller places. Got an offer a couple of weeks ago from a boutique firm that I really like. The pay is far less than I want and expected, but I think I'm going to take it because the experience seems incredible.
I'm kind of disappointed but I think my expectations were a little unrealistic.
how much lower is the salary? Below 6 figures? Also how hard was it to get the boutique offer? Did you feel like ur clerkship ensured it, or did they just need someone and didn't care about ur clerking experience?
