Going back for a second look after accepting the offer?

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Oct 09, 2013 6:02 pm

So I accepted an offer at a firm shortly after I received it. When I received it, I was told that they were looking forward to scheduling a dinner with other attorneys so that I'd have the opportunity to talk with more people while considering my options. I accepted the offer without doing this; when I accepted it, I was told that I could still come back in for a second look just to meet and talk with more of the attorneys and go out to dinner. Would it be weird to do this at this point? I would like to schedule this and go, but I know that these "second looks" usually happen in the context of deciding between firms, so I wouldn't want it to be weird if the attorneys who I meet with already know I've accepted. What do you think?

Yeah, that would seem pretty weird to me if I were one of the associates you were meeting with.

Yeah that's a little odd. They don't really need to sell you now or anything nor do you have a decision to make. Probably just being polite on their part to not cancel your dinner?

I don't think it's odd at all, at least it wouldn't be at my firm. It's just a chance to chat, learn some stuff, and get to know your future colleagues. Nothing weird about it.
