    I was reading the other day how "geographic diversity" may have started as a way for east-coast elite schools to dilute Jewish attendance (bring in more rural midwestern wasps vs local big city kids)

But now the bigger firms have moved in and are paying first-year associates $160k, for essentially the same billable hour requirements. Interesting times, indeed.
    Heh. My ex-BIL was with Browning Kalazac (sp?) last time I saw him. He is a douche, so I hope he gets fucked over by this new trend. Heard he knocked up one of their receptionists, not sure if true. He skis at Discovery.

    Ha, nice. You would think lawyers, of all people, would know better than to dip their pen in the company inkwell but I have heard so many contrary examples, it's mind-boggling.

    At my prior firm, lots of late nights in war rooms trying to drag deals to close lead to no shortage of stressed out young attorneys looking to bang it out. It's tradition.

    Oh yeah, no issues with associates shagging, but partners banging the hourly help? Bad idea. Probably.

    Probably.

    But then I just remembered one of my partners is married to his paralegal. Granted she quit when they started dating 20 years ago but hey.

    When I started, back in the day, the firm had a kegerator and the attorneys were all banging the staff. We’d drink every Friday at the firm then go out. I had the “good sense” to wait until my next job to date a staffer from my old job.

    Well shit, there goes my potential future of going to law school. I aced the LSAT and got huge scholarship offers from high-ranked schools for it, even though my undergrad GPA was under a 3.0 but decided last-minute not to go. It's always been on my list of things I'd still like to do though.

    If anything, I think they should have dropped the undergrad GPA requirement. No matter how well you've done in subsequent Bachelor's or Master's programs, the LSAC always uses your first undergrad degree GPA. So you could have partied too hard when you were 18-21 and barely made it out of undergrad, but then worked 10 years in a field and excelled, then taken a Master's and graduated with all the honors and a 4.0, and the LSAC will still take your undergrad GPA.

    Shit, I’d much rather be in Charles’ line of work, or Wes Anderson’s. In the words of Max Fisher, “I wrote a hit play, what did you ever do?”

    And don’t anyone be too impressed by the number of dentists posting here. If anything, I’ve found dentists to be well versed in extreme multitasking. Shit, I w got a tv on the wall, sportstalk streaming, and 3 widescreen monitors going on top of the phone(s). Pecking some drivel on the blue screen TRG is no more time consuming than walking down to the lounge to see if anyones drinking yet.

    I was shocked at Skadden NYC when a few associates asked me to go to a noon matinee movie.
    Two hours. Mid work day.

    And yet they billed 2,900 hours

    just send the bill through mtm's firm in located in that shit hole stripmall truck stop they call vail
    sometimes he gets paid if I think he did a good job
    other times he gets paid with breckenridge bourbon and a suitcase of coors
    then there are times I dispute the charges
    you for one have put many many billable hours into this place so the invoice may be payable

    Never know what’s helpful! I once used part of My Cousin Vinny as a training video.

    UTBMS P280 no doubt. This sounds like a “project” and it appears to be most firmly and more specifically “other.”

    I confess to double billing. Billing on a plane flight. Then billing for the work you did for another client.
