No, I'm only kidding. I'm still pretty excited to start at Cravath next summer. A couple of weeks down the road, I imagine we'll see that Cravath set the market and that Skadden is an outlier (along perhaps with S&C).

It's still undoubtedly a ton of money. My concern regards bonuses as an indication of the firm's overall financial health. But I think everyone will be cutting back in certain ways, and bonuses are probably a good place to start.

Give me the choice again, and I'd probably still be going to Cravath.

In this environment, it's amazing that any firm is still hiring. It's even more amazing that they're still handing out bonuses. Wait until they start getting squeezed by their cash-short clients.
