I thought it was worth it when I thought it was "just 55 hours" which is what my firm sells at recruiting events. Really, it is at least 55, and closer to 70, very stressful hours.

I mean $80k after 4 years isn't bad if you factor in that I'm an idiot and no one else would pay me this, and the fact that COL here isn't that high. But no, I will never be Trump rich or even Clinton rich in this field.

like

To be Trump rich, you have to inherit $100m+. Also, clinton is married to an ex-president. Few of us will ever have hat level of wealth or luck haha. I'm hoping to retire at 55-60 and that'll be enough for me

Yeah pay off that debt

As a public auditor married to a doctor, I can recommend this IF and only IF you go to a cheaper state school. Some of his med student colleagues have 300-400k in debt.

@OP are you suggesting it was ever worth it?

What is a Sample Deliverable? First thing they ask for on a project. My thought was it was a unfilled, cleansed (free of previous branding) template that is filled out as the client sme’s give input.

Do any of you have a great therapist (especially if you live in NYC but since it’s mostly virtual now I guess that matters less). I’m wanting to switch mine and it can be so hard to find someone that you click with, so I thought maybe other women lawyers might have good recommendations for the kind of therapist that can address my needs (work stress, relationship issues relating to work and being overly competitive about things, etc). Please respond or DM me!
