Interests: IP Lit (but also want to try corporate work)
Important: Some family time preferably; exit options; Job security; FT Offer % after SA

Loved both. Foley has a prettier building :lol:

E: might want to exit out into Consulting if I feel like law isn't for me

Foley LA is very friendly about attorneys who want to spend time with their families I'm told. They can opt for a different pay structure that helps to accommodate it. Wouldn't surprise me if it was the same at the DC location? Not sure if Akin does too but kind of doubt it.
