How often do firms rescind offers?

Postby Anonymous User » Sun Aug 27, 2017 5:48 pm

I have an offer from a smallish biglaw firm that is only taking 3-4 summers at the office. I feel pressure to get back with an answer but still waiting out to hear from a few firms. What are the chances that the firm rescinds because I take too long?

Are they a NALP firm? If so you have 14 days to affirm your interest and 14 more days to accept the offer.

How long did they say they intend to keep your offer open*? If they didn't say, I'd be in favor of contacting their recruiting department (not any of your interviewers!) and asking. With this kind of thing, knowing is almost always better.

*Of course, if they're a NALP firm, anon above has hit it - in that case, no need to ask.
