There's something seriously wrong with you if you'd rather move to NYC to maybe have a chance
of doing doc review in a city with a ridiculously high COL instead of taking a sure thing at a job that will be infinitely more interesting that reviewing documents with no benefits and meager pay.
Go to NYC, leave the other job to someone who has a brain.
Its not my goal to do doc review forever. Just make some extra money on the side while I find a job. I just don't see a future in being a public interest lawyer in some rural-ish area. I've interned at a place like this and you don't learn anything and I'm sure firms and govt entities are aware of the incompetence associated. Any other thought of the availability of doc review jobs in NYC?
I don't really understand your line of reasoning.
You are thumb your nose at a public interest organization because you "don't learn anything." Yet, your solution to not having a job is to go do doc review. Do you really believe that doc review will provide a better learning experience than a public interest organization? What about the PD that you said in a other thread that you have a job offer from?
Look, you have two options - either take a legal job that will allow you to build some legal experience or be unemployed (or not employed in a legal job) when you graduate. You have to play the cards you are dealt - take the PI job and make the most of it.
That said, you clearly don't want the public interest job. No amount of logical reasoning will change your mind - so why waste everyone's time by asking?
