Splitting 1L Summer...

Splitting 1L Summer...
« on: March 02, 2008, 01:27:11 PM »
Any disadvantage to splitting for a 1L summer in the 2L job hunt?  Should I pick firms that are very different (different cities, different practice areas, different firm culture, different sizes) or should I pick similar firms to try and decide this summer which one I like best? 

Should I just stick with my favorite firm for the whole summer?

Pay isn't an issue.  All the firms are within a range of a few hundred dollars a week near the top pay for the geographic area.

We have been discussing this very issue in the post titled "Federal Judge internship vs. Law firm (Summer Job 1L)?"

Check it out and let us know your thoughts.

I've already decided to split at this point between two firms.  I picked a smaller boutique and a larger regionally prestigious firm (pay is at biglaw rates for both).  They'll give me different practice areas and somewhat different geographic areas.  I'm not really worried about getting no-offered because I split especially not as a 1L.
