You've thrown some strange numbers around previously for other occupations. I just love your "optimistic" outlook on comps. I'll admit, my previous reference to large-cap PE associates making $400-500k was a bit of hyperbole. KKR is the only firm I know of where comp falls in...

Sorry guys, I was seeing how many ridiculous, raving multi-paragraph responses I could get out of SG without writing more than a couple sentences myself. I think the OP got a good idea of what to go after, anyway. Sounds like Big 4 is the ticket.
Why not stick with being a consultant? Too much travel? If you stay at your firm for the 3 years you would have spent at law school, you will be making at or near the ~$150k that BigLaw pays while enjoying a better quality of life.

Your sense of entitlement is sickening.

This guy is not 250. And 5' 10" 190 is pretty damn muscular if you aren't carrying fat.

This is comedy. I guess over half the households in the US are not 'living.'
