Can you ever negotiate 1L SAs?

Post by ppmax »

Wondering if it's ever possible to negotiate with 1L SA offers--presumably not pay (both firms pay scale), but like if one offers a scholarship and one doesn't, or some kind of material-non-salary perk like that.

Thoughts???

I suppose you could, but I'd be surprised if you got anywhere. A scholarship is usually going to be part of a formal program, not something that a firm will just gin up in response to a single 1L, but I suppose if you have competing offers and one has something the other doesn't, you can give it a shot. Not sure there are perks that are really worth it (why not just take the offer with the perk?).
