I had a fertility assessment appt at Weill Cornell (I’m 36) and they did an ultrasound and blood check but the doc said they didn’t count my follicle counts on ultrasound and they’d do it prior to the start of my egg freezing process. I’m actually not sure yet if i want to do it yet and the reason I went to the doc is to see how’s my fertility right now. Isn’t follicle count check via ultrasound one of main fertility assessments along with AMH?

Is it possible to move from an AM50 firm to AM 10/20 in corporate M&A / PE. I’m a third year and thinking of making a move in a year or so.
Cooley should have just fired that SEC lawyer. The trajectory of their downfall pretty much follows Elon calling them out on Twitter. I guess Perkins is next. https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/1527774704018280448?lang=en
For any litigators who have gone in-house in a transactional role, how do you feel about your decision? What do you miss and what are you glad you left behind?
Im a rising third year and I've already reached the point where i just dont care anymore. Im tired all the time and even when work is slow, im still tired. Probably because i just dont care about the work im doing. This is a long career and im starting to worry (kinda ironic after I said idc..) that if im like this at year 3, how will I survive?

Feeling a bit frustrated as I am making a lot of mistakes. I am a first year at a V10 corporate group, and I keep making mistakes when under time pressure or multitasking on 3-4 deals. I have sent wrong documents, made typos on emails and understood the assignment wrong every now and then. I am worries I come off as incompetent even as a first year.
When is it time to leave?
10th year in a relatively specialized field and partnership prospects are fantastic. Problem is, I’m completely fried. I find the work boring. I’m constantly asked to do marketing work for which I receive no billable credit. Because of this, I feel like I’m working at least12 hours a day to bill 7. I work with folks in different time zones, so I’m either up till 3 or up at 3. I sometimes nap while my family has dinner so that I can stay up late working. Time to go?
When should I start to get worried that corporate is so slow? Have only billed 230 hours for the year so far and it doesn’t seem like things are picking up soon so getting nervous since my firm has a billable hours minimum requirement.
What kind of car do you drive and how much did it cost? Obviously this depends on a lot of other factors like other expenses (mortgage, student loans, kids, etc.). I've been driving the same car since high school, a 2012 Hyundai Elantra. There isn't anything wrong with it, but I kind of want a car with the newer safety features like blind spot cameras and lane assist. I'm just curious how much other people are spending.
I’m a first-time prospective lateral likely to get an offer shortly. I just received a lateral questionnaire that requests billable hours, rates, fees collected, etc. for the last three years. Forgive my ignorance but is this normal/standard? Do people actually answer these honestly? One of the reasons I’m leaving my firm is there isn’t enough work in my group so of course my hours are low.
If an attorney refers multiple times to “Lathan” & Watkins, do you assume they’re not aware of what it’s called or is just trying to be sassy?

Not something they’re especially know for, but consistent with their overall strategy of servicing private equity.
That’s helpful, thanks.
