Getting a b4 tc doesnít magically make you the wunderkind.
Remember that Big 4 (especially WongP) takes in second lowers

Iím not asking for advice lol ó I was replying, as someone who made the jump to a better place. Itís a tedious and painful process but very worth it. This may surprise you but people do leave in the middle of a TC or drop a TC late in the timeline and they open up spots that arenít necessarily advertised. A lot of your success depends on timing and you can count on everyone else thinking itís impossible and not even bothering to check or try so late in the period. Thereís certainly no harm in trying. Obviously before you jump you need to secure an offer first, so what is the harm? I donít understand why youíre trying to convince juniors something is hopeless and not even worth the attempt but itís got more to do with your issues than their situation. Frankly if your point was that some places donít offer TCs maybe you wouldíve had a point. But thatís not the topic here is it?

legal profession has definitely lost its lustre. i studied law in the early 2010s and that was really the height of its prestige. apart from med, most law students can strut around nus or smu campus feeling prestigious whenever you tell people ur from law. also very easy to xian girls saying tt you're a law student.

back then law starting salaries also highest amongst the GES so quite prestigious. but now other fields like CS have easily overtaken the average local firms' salaries and more importantly cost of living and property hv gone up tremendously. if you're stuck in a local firm as a newbie lawyer, you're literally looking at BTOs rather than dreaming of condos, even if your fiance is also a lawyer. Unless you manage to get an international firm gig.
The statement abt cs grads did not stood the test of time.

Why arent SUSS students confined to only crim and family law? I mean that is what they said they wish to do during their interviews. Isnt it disingenuous that they now try other practices
