If a firm gives different bonus amounts for district court (ex: 50k) and circuit court (ex: 75k) clerkships is it common to receive both combined (ex: 125k) when you join? Or is it normal to receive some lesser amount?

I think “it depends”! ;-). I’m inferring that you did two clerkships (COA and DC) back to back. I think my first firm (V5) would give the higher amount, but not combined amount (though I’m not 100%). My second firm (V35) actually gave lesser than market (like $30k for the two-fer), but for a transactional practice group. And they were generally cheapskates. Litigation groups that highly value clerkship experience MIGHT pay combined, but not sure. Then there are some boutique lit shops (like Kellogg Huber in DC) that pay above market clerkship bonuses

FISH FAM! Looking for advice on late-stage startup offers:   Currently at 140k base and have two offers: - Offer 1 – Growth role: 130k base + 160k Stock Options (vesting over 4 years) - Offer 2 – Business Development role: 160k OTE (120k base + 40k uncapped commission) + 180k RSUs (vesting over 4 years)   Are these offers within the right range?

Would you suggest paying down student loans (approx $29k) while 0% interest or put that money into savings. I’ve been on a 10% salary reduction since April and bought a house last fall. I’ve been able to pay my bills and maintain about 2-3 months of expenses in savings. My disposable income has reduced due to the salary reduction, but I’ve cut out unnecessary spending. I’m trying to decide whether to take advantage of 0% interest and get my loans as low as I can or put that money into savings.
