This is difficult to rank because DSC is a outlier. It is not the rest of the Big 4 but training there is surely good or better than B4.

But not many people can take the hours/not sustainable. For some of us there's a degree of self-selection (and preservation lol) so it might be excluded.

He does pay really well though.

In terms of prestige, the best but long hours I hear. Good for the career, bad for all other aspects of life.

If you're a MAS scholar you can't get called when serving your bond and you'll be sent to do finance/economics/policy work

But after you enter practice you realise it is

Milbank, White & Case, Shearman Sterling, MoFo, Skadden, Dechert (if you are open to move to HK, then you have more options like Cravath, Kirkland)
Traditional Magic Circle (links, cc, a&o)
Offshore Magic Circle (Cooleys, Harneys)
Silver Circle
Baker
The rest

So did your inferiority complex develop before or after entering law school?

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.
he thinks being good at exams alone will make him a good lawyer

on part b they tell people dont anyhow go overseas, need to be in sg for some classes and things such as call papers. i wanna see how mad you get when the people who go bangkok bali hk every other weekend get distinctions

It depends. Some departments have quite a number of legally trained officers. These departments like people who can write well as their officers would have to do a fair bit of it.
