Which Offer Should I Take?

Postby Anonymous User » Sat Aug 26, 2017 12:33 pm

Hi Everyone,

So, as of this moment, I have received offers from S&C, Skadden, Sidley, and Latham, along with a couple others I discounted for personal reasons. Unfortunately, I really enjoyed my visits with all four firms, and am having a very difficult time figuring out what my best offer is. Ideally, one could give me the best firm to go to for post-law school employment, and the best firm for just the summer. I would really appreciate any insights. Also, I am interested in litigation and have very little interest in corporate work if that makes a difference.

Thanks!

They're all the same tbh. Do you prefer a certain drink? Bud Light = Skadden. Red Wine = S&C. Craft IPA = Sidley. Vodka = Latham.

Sorry about that oversight. The offers are in D.C.

Also, yeah, Nebby, it does seem the four are very similar, which was why I was curious if anyone could lay out some distinctions. What if I want all four kinds of alcohol to survive Biglaw?

If lit, and in DC, Sidley/S&C over Skadden/Latham.
