Job Search / Re: Boston DA vs. Federal District Court Judge

I already accepted the DA's position. I would not of had a chance to interview with the Judge before the expiration of the DA's offer. So I guess I'm just looking for whether or not I made a good choice. The DA's office also said that they do not allow the summer to be split. I have an interest in working for a large law firm after graduation.

Job Search / Boston DA vs. Federal District Court Judge

So I was just offered a position working for the Boston DA's office. I was given only a week to decide and figured it would be a good summer job for me. However, I was called up by a Federal District Court Judge for an interview regarding a summer internship. Which would you choose, the DA's job or the position with the Judge? I also took this job over working with the US attorney's office in CT.
Does it make that much of a difference? Which one do you think is the best?

ok i see my schedule, but how do I tell what section that puts me in?

nice. I'm running it next year. Starts in my hometown so it's kinda like a right of passage.

It's pretty tiny. Although they do have tredmills and stairs. I've already gotten a year membership to a private gym.

Not a bad schedule at all. Thanks for the info!

I have a quick question if anybody has any experience working with attorneys here. I've been talking to alot of friends and I've heard stories about how alot of attorneys are working 100 hour weeks. Is there any truth to this? I mean, I'm ok even working 80 hour weeks, but having to bill 80 and work 100 a week at some of these big firms just seems too absurd to be true.

Of course.

The US News and World Report gave BC a 2:3 ratio. It is why BU is currently ranked ahead of us.

Sent my seat deposit in today.
