Advice on 1L summer options

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Mar 31, 2011 1:44 pm

Currently, for this summer, I have a part time RA position and a part time (10 hours a week or less) unpaid internship that is not PI but kind of in house. I have an interview tomorrow with a firm that is the smaller office of one in the city. Full time and paid. I am not sure what to do if I get the job.

I figure that the firm would look better on my resume, and I am dirt poor so I could use the money. I don't mind working a lot of hours a week, but I do not think that I will be able to go home in the summer. Any advice on what I should do in the event that I get the job?

Thank you.

edit: I have also already started to do work for the part time in house position, which is where part of the concern comes in. I also think that I might be there for use of Lexis, but I am unsure.

and I am a 1L

So now the prof. for my part time RA position has offered to make it full time, and I have until Friday to decide whether to accept. I still have not heard back from the firm job, and I don't know if I will until after Friday. Should I risk the full time position for a job offer that I might not get?
