How Long after offer do you have to accept?

I ask because what if you receive an offer but still have a bunch of callbacks later on in the week/month. Do they expect you to accept on the spot?

This is good to know. I have heard there are special provisions for pre-OCI offers - that there is something tied to the start date of OCI at your school? I couldn't seem to find it in the NALP guidelines. Does anyone know if such a provision even exists?

I got an offer for a 2L SA position in April of 1L year. They were required to leave it open until mid-September b/c of NALP guidelines, although I am not sure exactly how the deadline was calculated. But I am pretty sure they have to give you some sort of opportunity to do OCI if you get a pre-OCI offer.
