A Future Billing Machine Is Born
David Banh just graduated from University of Virginia and probably won't continue on to law school until he completes his masters in math. But if law firms are smart, they'll initiate efforts to recruit Banh right now, because he's destined to become a veritable billing machine.
What makes Banh so special? As this article, U-Va's One Year Wonder Teen Graduates Early (Washington Post 9/20/06), Banh whipped through college in one year, relying on a combination of 72 AP credits that he collected in high school, followed by 23 credits his first semester in college (instead of the usual 15), a whopping 37 credits the next (he'd complained that he had too much time on his hands the first semester), with the last three, needed for a double major, completed during the summer. The article reports that after finishing up a masters in math, Banh will forego the doctorate and head to law school to become a patent attorney. So law firms, start your recruiting engines: This guy just might bill 3,500 hours a year.
