But how about the linklaters and HSF offices in Singapore? Iím wondering why do the international firms have so little presence in SG as compared to other Asian cities like Hong Kong or even Tokyo?

The hiring by connections point is very true, but I think it applies to all firms
Untrue on point #1. Rodyk, KW, etc not as selective as B4. Same goes for knockoffs. Only exception is if you're applying to do ONLY international work with SG work to fulfil ptc.

Put retention aside. How much do these firms pay ptcs compared to the 2K at b4

I know of a lot of people who went overseas and had fun but still managed to get retained in big fours/int firms, maybe employers like them. Maybe they are got more worldly and street smart from having different experiences. I donít know.

I just feel that no matter how much I study I still canít beat those party goers/wanderlusts. Why is life unfair.
Hello. Unfortunately, much of the skillset that's useful in the market place isn't taught in school and can't be gained by mugging. And it's not just wordly-wise and streetsmarts. It's so many other things.

Plus, mugging is something that prepares you for exams... Which only tests one part of what legal work requires you to be good at..

Makes sense. Firms hire trainees with a view to retain them. If you cannot be retained, why hire you?

The market rate for MOST FLAs is less than 2. Good that your FLA is actually matching B4
