Excellent reputation for lender side work - probably the best shop for it. But 1) They don’t treat laterals as well as home grown, and 2) The constant fire drills on lender side trees can be brutal.

Not at DPW. The hours are usually higher than some of the other V10s. But the real killer is when you do those hours. I am a borrower side attorney and frankly I feel sorry for most of my DPW compatriots when I send them Thursday/Friday papers for Monday return. Most finance attorneys go there to get their foot in the door and end up at either borrower side firms like K&E, STB, Debevoise, Fried Frank etc. or more relaxed lender side practices.

Asking this question here for a reason. In our culture and set up, a majority of the time is spent in cooking. We usually don’t eat microwave meals. I want to understand how Indian families cope up with all the traveling associates with consulting. Does the mother or father usually stay at home or be in a “light” job?

Originally, I viewed this as a great learning opportunity but can't help to think I'm not cut out for this and fear the worst.

What’s your next move, if any? I had three interviews at the end of August (obtained outside of their normal recruiting process) with an AmLaw 100 firm for an associate job. The managing partner was up front with me that they are trying to gauge needs and that they need a month or two for something else to shake out. This was not a clear blowoff, in context. How/when do I show continued interest/remind them I exist politely/avoid hurting my odds? Assume I’m not delusional.
