so you're saying top 1/3 of your class is not "being top percentage" because it definitely is

Exactly. If I need to beat of 65% of the class for big law, I aint working 20 hours a week in law school.


So when you use the word top percentile you mean anything above 65 percent.... LSAT score 155 is top...

Context of what we are talking about determines what I consider top percentile. For LSAT I obviously don't, but the LSAT isn't a hard curve where no matter how good I do grades have to align a certain way. If i know my crap I will score well, versus the subjectivity of law school grades means I'll need all the advantage I can get.


Sorry typically people on TLS talk top percentile in law school they mean around 15 percent. Bc they use it in the context of clerkships or for lower tiered schools they want big law and they use around 15 percent is the cut off. I think after you look at the employment part of TLS you'll see someone ranked out of the top 15 percent and not in the bottom 20 have pretty much same employment achievements for T16

big law quality of job can be drastically different but that's firm dependent and not a factor of the prestige of the big law job you're going into
most big law firms pay market 160k i don't know what "110k is their top percentile for big law" is supposed to mean

ETA: this is to say that big law coming out of columbia does not mean your life will suck less than big law coming out of any school, and that you will still be getting paid 160k


you know not every places big law is the same.... like philadelphia big law is 145k missouri its 110k. If you are in WUSTL you are probably are getting the missouri one that's why they don't publish their numbers. USC does because they get a couple 160k in LA but compare it to UCLA you see a bigger proportion

I haven't done this trying to figure out what it'll feel like but to try and figure out what to expect. But I have definitely done it
