Where do you wanna end up?

Post by art vandelay » Fri Jan 02, 2009 11:41 pm

So, since we're all jockeying for admission at certain schools, I'm just wondering where everyone hopes to wind up to practice law after law school? Basically, what does your ideal end-game look like?

As for me, I wanna end up practicing corporate in Dallas. Big firm to pay off debt, then either stay in as long as possible or move into an in-house role somewhere.

What about everyone else? NYC? LA? The Bay? Any other Dallas-es?

I wanna end up on a Brazilian beach at age 150 buck naked lying on a gold plated/diamond encrusted massage table sipping coconut milk from a straw.

DC. Market pay + living in Virginia = winz.

Houston wouldn't be too bad either.

Here I am. :wink: I'd like to do something like lobbying for a non-profit. At this point, I'd have to problem staying in my hometown of Atlanta.
