The trend of getting in at 10am seems pretty much confined to major markets, mostly NYC. In smaller markets it's not unusual for partners to get in before 8am and leave before 6pm. If you have a SO who's working a 8-5 or 7:30-3:30 (teacher) then you might want to think again about going to a market where you'll be working 10-8 and never seeing your SO. I turned down major market BigLaw for regional BigLaw largely because of this.

How about you exercise regardless? Kinda seems like a necessary thing. But if you aren't PHYSICALLY able to handle simply working long hours, you're pretty unhealthy.
