Law: Hmmm

March 31, 2008

As any of you that read this blog fairly often know, I accepted a job working in a large Midwestern city that isn’t Chicago.  Before I did that, I did one final call-back interview with a massive/super-profitable Chicago firm fortheir summer program.  If I would have been offered that job quickly, I would have had to make a difficult decision very quickly.

 I never heard from them and didn’t think twice.  My decision was easier and I was in some ways happy about that.  Yesterday I checked my mailbox and had what I figured was a ding letter from the firm.  A quick reading revealed the letter to be a fake-quasi-ding letter.

The text was basically this:  We can’t offer you a job right now.  Sorry.  We like you, but we don’t have 1L spots left.  We are offering you a job right now for next summer.  You can accept now or you can visit with us next fall.  The offer is good until the end of next fall.  Please let us know.

What the hell?  Seriously.  I don’t know if I should be happy, mad, disappointed, or something else.  Seriously, what the heck?

 At least its a semi-cushion for the ego.  I have had similar offers earlier this cycle but they always came over the phone.   Hmm……
