My not super well informed opinion is that you can still make a lot of money after going in-house but that’s by moving to a non lawyer job.
what is “a lot” in this scenario?

genuine question, because I think I’ve lost concept

Do thousands of practice MBE questions multiple choice. Everyone you get wrong dissect the hell out of. +1 If you can run up enough of a lead (70% right+) on the multiple choice the essays basically don’t matter. If you’re getting bad scores on the essays, work on how you’re structuring them. You c...

Re: Cancelling an accepted offer

I reneged on a summer offer, and the employer was pissed and contacted my school to complain about me. my school forced me to have two conference calls about how awful what I did was etc but I wouldn’t have my career as it stands if I didn’t make that decision. the job was massively better, the pay ...

As a PSLF truther I wonder if it makes more sense to stay in ten year plan and take the law school for all the money it will give you and actually have your loan balance decline
these schools with excellent lrap programs seem to pay the 10 year amount even if you are on PAYE (at least CLS)

I’m down to 97k from 194k and it’s looking more and more like I’m going to hit that FRB rebate by paying them off before February 2021 (I’ve paid 39k in the last 12 months lol) paying my loans down is apparently my drug of choice. the high only lasts a minute, the costs are excessive, it’s possibly ...

I'm not sure about Nelnet specifically but that's standard practice with the servicers I've used.
that’s always how it was for me as well

Re: In House Interview -- contract editing exercise

I had to do this one time for an in-house interview at an investment advisor. In that instance they gave me a standard ISDA and prime brokerage agreement and had me mark them up with suggested edits.
