A new associate or partner in a top law firm makes the same $ whatever their gender or skin color. After that is all billings and hustle.

Have you ever worked in a law firm? Do you even know how the hustle works and how many advantages the men have over the women, even at the partner level?

I'm a (senior) partner in a top 10 firm. You're missing the real point. Some men (for sure not all) have advantages. Other men (most actually) have none. Women typically have in-built biological and emotional disadvantages. But in a typical big law or finance field, the biggest hustler gets the $.

You're not actually disagreeing with me. Parties happen (obviously) at times you think are weird as well as at times you think are not weird. Your choice to attend or not. Get over yourself. [ Reply | More ]

We use to hike Bear Mountain with the kids. Skating at the bottom and a merry go round. You would need a car though. Closer to home would be Van Cortlandt Park. Or go to Scarsdale -- Greenburgh Nature preserve. There's also a nice trail in Larchmont that has water nearby. [ Reply | More ]

Good new is yes. Bad news is that being a legacy counts for very little. Now if you've donated $10 MM to Columbia that will help a great deal, but then they wouldn't care if your degree was from Trump University. [ Reply | More ]
