Re: Splitter's chances at Georgetown ED?

Don't do ED at GULC.

Signed,
Someone who did ED at GULC

Retake for a higher score, apply to other comparable schools even if you have no intention of going to them, negotiate for better scholarship.

Covington has about 12 minutes to match Hogan before its associates very politely and intellectually riot.
Covington very consistently drags its feet and/or actively opposes associate raises at every chance it gets. I think their associates understand at this point how much the firm values them.

New theory guys Latham is going to wait until this whole raise thing is diluted, and at the peak of Latham-hatred, they're going to come out at 200k.
News is they apparently already matched bro

Eventually they'll figure out they are in such demand that they really don't need to match. How many prestige whores will lateral from Hogan to DLA Piper.
How long do you think the prestige will last if they start paying less?

The latter will def match. oh I getcha. Yeah the Wilmers, Hogans, and CovingTTTons will try to block but lol at anyone foll...

Re: New York to 190k (not flame) [x-post since this webbort is ded] {trump economy}

The weirdest thing about biglaw is that the mega millionare partners don't seem to really go crazy. I'm not sure if they are ratholing the money or if they just have spendthrift wives. One of the equity partners I work with has 3 kids share a bedroom. Clearly you're not working at a POWERHOUSE big ...

Re: GULC ($$$) vs Michigan ($$)

As a GULC grad (who made it to Biglaw, dubious "accomplishment" that that is), go to Michigan. (Moderately) less grade stress and more employment options are very good things.

Re: GULC students & grads taking questions

As I think Ezra kind of alludes to above, cut throat behavior is not necessary or even helpful so more chill, quietly hardworking and attentive students I noticed doing better than the obsequious gunners or partying types. Why so many people at GULC didn't seem to give a shit is beyond me because li...

Re: GULC students & grads taking questions

I've actually heard that OCS gives aggressively bad advice sometimes — like terrible bidding advice, or 'don't bother applying with your grades' or like 'you should straighten your natural hair for interviews' If I listened to OCS I wouldn't have landed with the (sweet) firm I'm at now.

Anyone know the going hourly rate for faculty research assistants?
$17, it’s not negotiable
Is it still $16.90 or did you all cop a MARKET SHATTERING RAISE in the past 3 years?
