Exactly, then what's the point of going for SLIP?
Listen, I know I seem to be one of the only people here who is a finalist for the SLIP who has absolutely no other legitimate summer opportunity left. I didn't get any offers after callbacks. I don't begrudge any of you the right to evaluate your options and decide that you have better opportunities and/or the SLIP isn't right for you, but is it really that hard to understand why someone would be desperate to get an offer from the SLIP even if there isn't the same chance for permanent employment afterwards that there is in biglaw?
Thanks to the user for giving the information about OIL offers. Congrats.
