What Starting Salary should a CS Merit Holder and a LLB Topper from DU Expect?

Someone with such achievements could probably get a starting salary of Rs. 75,000 per month at a big law firm. Or one could also get a starting package of not over Rs. 20,000 per month.

Academic achievements speak a lot about a person's determination and the potential of hard work that one can put in, but you must also remember that in the long run, your practical skills gathered on the job matter much more. If I had to choose between two candidates: one who is a top ranker, but seems to have more of academic knowledge than practical experience; and another who knows all the practical aspects (which he may have gathered during his internships) but is not too high a scorer, I would prefer the latter because his ability to get the work done over knowing all his subjects by heart would help me more.

Therefore, academic achievements may not be the sole criterion for selection at every organization where such a candidate may apply. It would be silly to comment without knowing about the other personality traits of such a person and about the organization where one is applying.
