This is just speculative, but I think that can absolutely be spun in a way that will benefit your search. Emphasize the hours, your general interest in the law, working in a professional environment w/ attorneys, etc. Then discuss how your experiences also made you realize that you prefer PI and contrast your Big Law experiences with your previous PI work.

I would be shocked if it hurt you compared to doing nothing, but it would be better to have some post graduate PI experience. Especially if you are interested in non-government work, it would be good to see how those organizations work as a full time employee if you haven't before. It would also be good to demonstrate that you actually want to do PI legal work instead of just PI work generally.

Will do, thanks again.
