Do those firms hire laterals and let them become licensed in the jurisdiction after coming on?

I have an amazing life and go through swings of huge confidence followed by self loathing

I assure you I'm not humble bragging but on the surface I have an awesome life. I'm 25 with High comp, attractive, good social life, fit, etc. and sometimes it feels like that and my self esteem and confidence are through the roof

But other times it feels like I'm a failure that's not doing enough. I see Forbes 30 under 30 about all these success stories from ppl in their 20s and I feel like crap
