The catch is, you wouldn't begin employment until at least Feb 2011. I do have a job now that I could keep until that time.
Check your PMs.
Thanks for the quick reply. Here is more info, its a bit more complicated. While i'll be now in a city that I like, it is VERY likely that they will move me somewhere else, and very likely to a place that I would not want to live in. There is a 2 year minimum commitment. My family says to go to law school (and i party agree on their reasoning): If I take the job, I would want to grow within the organization (easy to do so) and wouldnt want to leave. It wouldnt also make a lot of sense (economically) to go to law school after a few years, since I can easily hit 160k (big law rate) within 6 years, with way better hours.
And I honestly would like to study law, and in a way, im scared that I wont get to do this if I take this job.
Yet again, what I would hate to go to law school, be in debt, and have no job offer...
