Wanking off at the pay packages of Tier I law firms. Corporate law sounds epic.
Don't really care about how life is at the firm tbh. As long as it pays well, I'm happy to enter. All speculation at this point anyway considering I need to be in the top 20% of even an NLU to crack a Tier I law firm.
God bless Corporate India and it's college prestige dominant hiring policies.

Teja, it isn't that we are trying to ruin your dream, and you may well carry it off.
I don't know anything about big firms in India, but here it is brutal. They take the strongest academic candidates and work them as hard as you can imagine. Six days a week or five at 16 hours a day is what's expected, and every starter or most of them has their eye on a partnership.
Most of them are gone in five years. The turnover and burnout rate is insane. Alcoholism and depression are rife. Mostly because they have to work with people like Jono.
Just be aware of it is all. You'll find the ones who burn out will be those looking for the $$$$ and not doing it because they're passionate. Long term, if you find an area of practice you're passionate about, the $$$$ will come because you love it.
Good luck with it anyway mate.

Ftr, It's pretty much exactly the same scene here, Apart from the 2-4 kids who get prestigious scholarships(Rhodes, Felix etc.) to study further abroad, The entire top 30-40% of the class goes to corporate law despite the hours being 9 am - midnight because simply, for Indian cost of living, It's ridiculous money. It's come to the point where the top law schools(which are all govt. ones) are pushing their 'Pursue litigation' agenda on the students right from the vice chancellor's speech on the first day to the end where the college does not assist in the placement process for corporates. Can't say I blame them.
