Harvard and Columbia are huge and NYC is a major market, and Yale is obviously the king of the mountain

Not sure why Columbia seems overrepresented compared to NYU. For Yale vs. Stanford it's more geographic

From what I hear, NYU is more diversified in what they do after graduation (non profit, clerkship, etc) For us from CLS, I think something like 80% or so go into biglaw bc that’s what the school is known for and why you signed up for it - breeding mercenaries of death 💀♥️

I did not meet my billable budget. I’m a 1st year and around mid October realized I was going to have to bill 8-9 hours a day before the end of this month to meet my budget, and planned to. However, my dad passed mid October which caused me to take time off. I’m about 200 hours behind, though. My boss said not to worry about it as they are understanding about me needing to take time off, but I’m still worried that this looks really bad…
