Thank you very much.
QS rankings are crap. Their rankings are based mostly on research. NUS and NTU pushes a lot of research out due to their huge faculties and the number of research associates. You canít seriously believe that NUS and NTU is better than UPenn, Yale, Columbia, and Princeton can you? The sheer number of millionaires, Nobel laureates, and people who have created revolutionary change who graduated from these schools is on another level as compared to NUS and NTU. If you step out of Singapore with a NUS or NTU degree, and someone steps out of the US with a Yale degree, who do you think an employer would hire?

Why Drew excluded?? Drew is hands down the best Big 4 firm in Singapore. Look at all our senior counsels Jimmy Yim, Cavinder Bull, Siraj Omar and other rising liti stars. And don't forget we are smashing it in the IP, tax and TMT side as well

Is there any advice for a 2pqe stuck in a Chinatown firm doing PI for very low pay and minimal career or salary growth? Extremely jaded daily. In-house options seem to be quite limited

2 paths open to you essentially.

Either jump to mid size firms for liti as a stepping stone, or slog it out until you get a profit sharing arrangement with ur boss and build your book of biz. Neither paths are gonna be easy.
