What does it mean when there are numbers in parenthesis? I.E. It will have the number of summer associates for a particular year as 10(2) for 2L's. Does that mean these folks split the summer? Does it mean they were 2L's but not graduating until for two more years due to being PT or getting a joint degree?
What is the procedure for formally accepting an offer with a firm? E-mail to the partner that made the offer? Telephone call followed by an e-mail? I figured a phone call would be more personal, but wasn't sure if something should be in writing.
