Im a third year that applied for an L&E position with an AM100 firm. Didn’t graduate from a top 100 law school but I’ve had great experience working at top firms. Im requesting that I only come in to the office 2 days per week and do remote the remainder of the week (so I don’t have to move to the city and can just commute in those 2 days). Odds that I get the job?

I understand that traditional vs. Roth 401k depends on tax bracket now vs. expected tax bracket in retirement. And of course there is the risk of changing tax laws. But what if you just don't know? Do you just split 50/50? Or once you're making over a certain amount, does it naturally make more sense to lean towards traditional? Not sure what other people do and what income level they make the shift to traditional, if at all.
