What does "through July" mean? (this is about splitting)

Postby Anonymous User » Sat Nov 19, 2011 3:02 pm

This is a silly question that probably only a law student would ask, I know. But if your employer said the summer associate program runs "through July," would you take that to mean the entire month of July, ending around the last full week of the month, OR just that it ends at some point in July?

EDIT: Of course I'm asking because of a potential split situation. I'll probably ask about the end date regardless of what y'all say, so advice on how to ask in a way that mentions the other offer (which is super flexible and might let my 6 weeks spill into when school starts if necessary) but not in a way that could be at all offensive (like I don't want them to think it's that I'd rather be at the other place-- it's really just that if this program ends in July anyway, I would like to get that extra experience and resume variety). I'm sure there is a way to do this, but I suck at this stuff.

All right, thanks guys. I figured it was at least until the 3rd or 4th week.
