Kirkland ny split summer

Thinking of splitting summer btw Kirkland nyc and an international firm overseas.

Has anyone heard of a situation where splitting summer in kirkland in particular has led to no offer?

They have a 100% offer rate, so that seems unlikely.

I've never heard of a situation where Kirkland allowed someone to split with another firm. Kirkland has its own international offices and would probably insist you split within the firm.

To echo the other posters: Kirkland is really proud of their 100% offer rate so if they let you split they surely wouldn't hold it against you, but the problem is that I don't think they let anyone split. The only Kirkland 2L summers I know who spent time at other firms were either just spending a couple weeks at Kirkland to touch back after spending 1L summer with them, or vice versa: doing the full ten weeks at Kirkland and then going to touch back at their other 1L firm at the end of the summer. I don't think anyone does a "real" split at Kirkland.
