depends on the firm and the market

in NYC and other major markets (non-Texas), it's 10 weeks


FWIW, I'm at a firm in a non-NYC major market and our summer program is only 9 weeks.

+1.


+2

My firm sent a mid-level associate down to our school, to hand deliver a gold embossed letter with the start date, along with a rep from their mobile phone supplier with sample smartphones for us to choose from. Blackberry and Apple each took us out for lunch also to sell us on their phone.



This was clearly a set up for you to brag about your gold embossed start date letter and fancy phone lunch.

I got an e-mail with a corny (but cute) clip art of a sun wearing sunglasses (because summers in Texas are sunny). Definitely prefer that over a pretentious envelope. I'm a simple guy.
