When you buy it at Starbucks, it’s not just orange juice. It’s an Odwalla pure-squeezed orange juice that’ll set you back about three dollars a bottle — a reality that doesn’t go unnoticed by Stanford law student Andrew Bruck. The dark-haired, T-shirt-clad New Jersey native takes a swig as he explains how he turned down a swanky summer associate gig to work at the Department of Justice instead.

For Bruck, that meant forgoing more than $3,000 a week at the law firm for a government job that got him a stipend from Stanford of about $500 a week. Even though his choice made it harder to justify the upscale O.J., the 24-year-old doesn’t have any regrets: “I figured I’d pass up the money and go do what I really wanted to.”
