Traveling for a "Second Look"

Postby Anonymous User » Sun Sep 15, 2013 1:54 pm

Has anyone had experience traveling to get "second looks" at law firms after receiving offers? I am torn between two firms in CA but go to school across the country. I would love to get back to the offices for a final shot at feeling them out and ultimately making a decision, do you think that firms would at least help out with travel expenses?

Yes, second look interviews on the firms' dime is standard practice. It's strange that the firms have not offered this to you. Ask them.

Kinda doubt they wanna pay for your Cali vacation, but it's worth a shot.

Worth a try.
