Course Selection -> No offer? Is this a thing?

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Jan 11, 2017 11:21 pm

I have taken/am taking a bunch of courses in two niche areas that my 2L SA firm doesn't do at all. I'm not really taking anything relevant to private practice. I want to work in government or PI in one/both of these areas and don't intend to work at the firm at all for any length of time if it can be avoided. I guess I might not get anything else though, so getting no offered would be a bit of a bummer. Firm has a 100% offer rate. Is anyone going to notice or care? I only ask because I'm pretty sure my transcript makes it blatantly obvious that I don't want to work there.

So should I expect a conversation over the summer about why I haven't taken corps but have taken several courses in unicorn law?

That sounds like a good use of everyone's time, doesn't it?

(Pretty sure this isn't going to hurt you, OP.)
