It's not uncommon, but I think case by case determination.
You should be able to articulate why you want to be in the other office. Also, the other office will have to approve the transfer.
Thanks! Further question: the way I see it, my options for transferring are
1. finish the summer, accept the offer at that office, start as a 1L and ask sometime after
2. finish the summer, accept the offer, do either 3L mass mail or apply to other firms in the target market after clerkship, if I get one, and bring it up when I have another offer
3. finish the summer, ask about switching offices before I accept my offer
3 would be a bad strategy, right? I'm worried about them reneging my offer if they don't think I'm committed to that office.
