I weep at the short sightedness on this boards. Highest starting pay and the easiest life is the priority, when what you should really be asking yourself is which firm will give me the best legal foundation and development opportunities for a successful career in the law?

Like all professions, you need to suffer a bit at the beginning to earn your right to success.

Have you noticed a reluctance for anyone to respond to your enquiries in detail? Being a law student you should know that there is potential liability for any comments on this board which might be construed as defamatory.

Improve your networking skills and find your answers by other means, rather than expecting others to put their necks on the line here.
I'm not the poster who had the three offers. But I wish to humbly say this. I do think it is short sightedness on your part to immediately assume that he wanted to minimize working hours. He just said he was aware of them.

Maybe he wanted to know more about the working culture and fit other than the hours themselves.
