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
Edit your post so people think you are smarter, and can understand you. I always do it, you should too...
sorry. The reason I think there is a T16 is because they are not affected by the recession as much as everyone else. Their quality of jobs is up to the level with each other. Outside that group you see huge drop offs. WUSTL, minnesota, USC differ a lot from this T16 from the pay and opportunities.
T14 was created by U.S News from the idea these 14 schools are never outside the top 14. Once you compare them to other schools you see UCLA and Texas pretty much hold these qualities: top LSAT medians, consistent placement in 160k jobs, federal clerkship.
