NY v50 v TX v100

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Aug 17, 2018 7:47 pm

Which would you choose, assuming that culture and fit were equal at both? Kinda thinking about long term exit/possible lateral options if I needed them down the road, and their availability due to “prestige” (not that v50 is necessarily very prestigious at all). I mostly just want to run firm life out for as long as I can, pay off loans quickly, and then become a college prof or something so I’m leaning towards TX.

Wayyy more detail needed. This could literally be Jones Day NY v. V&E Houston.

Agreed that this is not even close to enough detail. TX v100 would technically include Susman Godfrey, which tops every single one of the NY v5 by a mile if you're going for lit.

But I'm not sure Susman would be conducive to OP's goal of "mostly just want[ing] to run firm life out for as long as [s/he] can." Far easier to coast for a couple years in a large class size firm.

OP here. TX firm has relatively small class size (less than 20), and isn't particularly well known for any one thing. There's actually two NY firms. One is certainly more of a national name (v20), but has a 50-ish sized summer class, and has a very even spread across corporate/lit/etc. The other is a v50, with a 20ish sized summer class with a strong lit/finance practice. I'm still undecided about practice area.
