Here We Go Again


Another nominally OCI-related post, which is odd considering I graduated law school over a year ago.

Let's see here, what's the word I'm looking for? Ah yes. "Unsustainable."

Also, apparently some BigLaw firms are reconsidering the custom of paying more in their New York offices than everywhere else. Indeed, Manhattan has the highest cost of living in the country. According to that CNN article, the $10K difference in salary doesn't even cover the difference between New York and San Francisco. So I, as a confirmed Californian, choose not to bitch.


Sorry again for being a moron about your identity Saturday night. I don't think I've ever gotten that stupid with only three beers.

I think it's ridiculous to say that starting salary isn't a huge factor in how people make job decisions. With the kind of debt people leave law school with, it's a huge factor. It doesn't necessarily cloud other important issues, such as firm culture, geographical location, etc., but it's a fallacy to propose that it's not a deciding factor. Yeesh!
