The ZSA guide isn't helpful for bay street gigs. None of the firms OP referenced are paying their first year associates 95k/year, let alone 80k. And if you're only making $110,000 as a third year associate at A&B, I have a bridge to sell you.
As a general rule, mid-size and boutique firms servicing the same type of clients serviced by the large firms are going to pay their associates roughly the same base compensation at the start of their careers.

Not a very social justice oriented application and based on their criteria, it wasn't looking good.
I am very stressed to hear back from Dal in particular!
