I've been told that OCI employers aren't supposed to ding you for not working your 1L summer if you have valid medical reasons why you can't. Formalities aside, in practice, does it actually hurt you?
I'm in a position where I need serious spinal surgery within the next few years, the earlier the better. It takes an entire summer to recover completely. Since the job market's so awful right now, 2L employment is crucial and I'd rather not postpone studying for the bar after my 3L year, it seems like this summer would be the optimal time to get it done. Would this be putting me at a big disadvantage as far as OCI goes?
I'd appreciate your thoughts.
