2L Summer Help!!??? In-house at F500 or Policy Job in DC

Postby Joga Bonito » Tue Apr 09, 2013 6:56 pm

I'm at 2L at a T18. I have an offer for a summer internship at Fortune 500 company in the field I'm interested in Health/Life Sciences/Biotech but I'm pretty certain I have no shot at a job there after graduation, but maybe if I killed it they would recommend me to a firm they have contacts with.

The other option is a policy job for a large organization in the same field in D.C.. Both pay but the policy job isn't legal and I don't want to be banished from practicing law forever which is what I'm afraid of if I take the policy job, but I'd learn at lot there.

I don't know what to do, am I screwed either way?\

I need money to pay loans at some point lol so I 'd like a firm at some point doesn't have to be big though. I'm slightly below median or some shit lol but have good experience in government and during the year at a health care consulting firm.
