on the spot offers

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Aug 20, 2012 11:00 pm

how does that work? a partner just gives you an offer during your cb, and you say yes?
what if you want to think about it, still say yes and then renege after?

You say thank you, and think about it.

No you have to say yes or else.

OR ELSE.

I actually got an "exploding offer" at the end of the CB at the firm where I ended up. It was jokingly delivered though. Firms don't expect you to accept on-the-spot offers and would probably be suspicious of you if you did.
