I actually turned down an offer from them at one point because it seemed a little too chill. Like there’s still demands from clients and there’s still an expectation to bill a lot of hours, but it sounded like all of the associates that I interviewed with felt that they had very little oversight or guidance from partners. They described it as an environment, where you kind of have to teach yourself.

Everyone was very nice though

Friends, I’m 25, entering my third year in MBB, and I’m so burnt out (I’ve averaged close to 80 hours / week since joining and hate the culture). I’ve always had a passion for public interest law, have worked at an impact litigation firm, and am convinced that going to law school is the answer. I’m afraid that without a big scholarship, I’ll land in big law to pay off loans and will be in the same situation I’m in now (with 100k+ debt). Any advice? Thank you!

I've been seeing a girl for about 6 months. She's said she's into me, and that I treat her well, and took a big step of introducing me to people that really matter to her 3 weeks ago.

Her reason is stress - She's doing a masters and has just been evicted so can't afford to stay in the same city. When her masters ends in December she may have to move back to the US, as she might not get a job here.
