If you prefer LA to San Fran, move to Dallas. Otherwise move to Houston.

Austin is San Diego lately.

I buy it. Not high enough barriers to entry. You can get in making 200k, but do you want to hang out with a bunch of losers stuck in dead-end 200k jobs?

I looked up some nice houses in good neighborhoods, seems like 200-300k will get me some pretty awesome digs, comparable to a 600-700k house inan upscale burb here. Property taxis 1/3 of places like Westchester, coupled with a lack of state income tax, my real income should go up by at least 25-30%. Are the hours in Houston biglaw as brutal as NYC though?

Hitting 2000 means you're in no danger of being fired.

22-2400 borderline partnership with lots of extras.

2400+ strong change of partnership, but that's all luck.

No one blinks at the guy who happily does 1950 of good work every year.

280k in Houston: Mansion next to George H.W. Bush

280k in MFH: Crushing poverty, qualify for food stamps
