On the same note, how do I respond to the midsize for the time being without making it sound like I'm putting the firm as my second choice?
If the midsize is a NALP firm, you have 28 days total and don't have to tell them anything.
It's not -- they gave me a two-week deadline.
I might not say anything to the midsize firm. Just get that writing sample to the V100 and make sure they are aware of the deadline with the midsize firm. Inform the V100 they are your first choice (if in fact they are) and hopefully they will make the effort to reach a decision by the deadline if possible. I wouldn't risk jeopardizing any "good will" or whatever you have with the midsize firm. Probably not great to come into the SA labeled - fair or not - as the person who doesn't even want to be here.
