1L here. Not from a T30. I am essentially a noob here so please bear with me.
I have no legal experience. I am trying to get into patent litigation/IP law. Getting IP work as a 1L was tough so I applied to the DA offices in my area just to get some experience. I wound up getting two that appealed to me-- the OCDA and Los Angeles DA.
I have already accepted the OCDA's offer and now I don't know if I should request to split time between the two offices or just do full-time with OCDA. (I may also be doing so remote writing for an IP firm but that's not a 100% thing yet.)
So what should I do? Thanks for the (kind) help.

Well, I wasn't sure if it would look good that I was hired at the LA DA and I also wasn't sure if I should do it to pack my bare resume. Furthermore, I am worried about the quality of my experience if I split my time. Also, my "back-up" is prosecution.
