Splitting Summers

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Oct 01, 2012 3:53 pm

Has anyone ever asked a firm to split their summer even though its NALP form says no split summers? If so... how did that turn out?

i'm also in this situation. i guess we'll just have to ask. my feeling is that recruiting coordinators are there precisely to filter such concerns.

If you're looking for what they normally do etc, then go to the recruiting coordinator. But if you know the rule already and want an exception, talk to the hiring partner. He/she is the one that can bend/break/make exception to the rules.

I asked a firm last year, they said no. It wasn't a big deal.
