I returned after law school, because I actually liked working at OW before and decided I didn't want to practice law. My perception of the firm hasn't changed much, other than that I find it harder to reintegrate as an experienced/returning hire than when I started with a class of undergrads. I was also working in a different part of the world so I don't know anybody in US, and don't have a network here. Even though I chose to forego another career path and come back, I still see this as a stepping stone to something else though, not planning to stay forever. Why are you asking OP? Are you thinking of leaving and coming back?

Thanks OW. Good perspective. I'm asking because I'm leaving to go to B-school (self-funded) and always had in mind that I wouldn't come back. After a few good conversations with friends at work, I do realize the value of coming back but am not sure how I'd feel about that. Of course I have plenty of time to decide, but was just curious.

@OP weird question but how did you save up for Bschool and where did you go? I'm just a first year associate and thinking about it in the next 3-5 years
