Re: 2018-2019 SEO Applicants

since theres only a couple of weeks between the date we learn we got seo, and the date we need to be in NY, are we responsible for booking flights, or will seo/firms cover us? You’re responsible for your travel to NYC, your firm will either pay for your travel from NYC to your placement city or rei...

Anyone got an offer from Fenwick? Still waiting post CB
I know someone who got an offer but turned it down so they may be reaching out to their next pick shortly.
How recently did they turn it down?
Maybe 2 days ago or so.

Re: 1L/Diversity SA Thread 2019

If an offer says to let them know by 2/9 does that mean I can tell them my decision on that day? Thoughts? If it says by 2/9 I'd say the absolute latest you can respond is COB on 2/9 but if you can get them an earlier response you should and if you need a response it might be worth requesting one.

Accepted a public interest position today and I am so excited! The hard part though is that it is in a major city I don't live in and Michigan only gives you so much money for the summer. :cry:
