People at V10's don't work i-banking hours. My brother, as a summer at one of the three firms mentioned by the OP, came into work at 6:30 am and left sometimes as late as midnight. He got most weekends off, but was dead tired from the workweek. Lawyers might work these hours for short bursts at a time, but not consistently like bankers do.
Law = work cuts into your social life.
Banking = work cuts into your sleep.
As a summer? Ouch. At least in law summer'ing you can kind of fool yourself into thinking working at the firm is rainbows and sunshine.
