Small sample set, but it looks like ten years after graduation and by the time you retire are virtually identical for each question, meaning the only difference is the prevalence of BigLaw? right after graduation given debt. Obviously not surprising, but it begs the question why so many people don't expect to stay at big firms but end up doing it- a question with different sets of answers for everyone I suppose.
