Are most/any unpaid 1L positions open to the possibility of a split with a firm or another organization? If so, when in the interview process would be the time to discuss a split?

(1) Yes they are and (2) after you have the offer from the first organization. I know many who did this, but it comes with its own downsides (stress of splitting the summer, uncertainty of landing the second job, etc.)
