After nearly a decade at disorganized small firms where I wore many hats (and sometimes nearly every hat!), I accepted a biglaw offer as part of a team of maybe a dozen Legal Secretaries. This firm invests a lot into training and staffing, which I think would be great for an ADHDer like myself. The firm has great Glassdoor reviews and everyone I have spoken to so far seems really happy there. But I am still nervous about the transition straight to biglaw. Any advice?

Additional Posts in Investment Banking - IBD

I have an accounting background but was able to break into IB. I’ve been studying for the SIE and feel pretty confident about it and I’m averaging 80+ on the practice exams, however I missed the window to test for another week bc of availability (should have scheduled it sooner). If I start studying for the 63 and while I wait to take the SIE do you think that will hurt/confuse me? Sick of looking at SIE materials, surprised there’s not any more testing windows …
