5. Finally, I had a question about how to approach my situation. I am currently at an amazing firm this summer and I am very much enjoying my summer associate experience. I really hope to get an offer to come back/work here in the future. However, there are a lot of alumni from my current school who are partners here. Most attorneys at this firm actually come from my current school. I am transferring mainly because I want to keep the option open to teach in the future, GULC offers the speciality I want and that my current school lacks, and I would love to live in DC (at least for law school). However, I can't tell the firm this because they want people who are dedicated to the partnership track. How do I approach them to tell them I am transferring? Should I tell them now or wait until the end of the summer? I don't have many geographical ties to this area but I really do truly want to remain in this city, and hopefully at this firm.
