I agree, was simply trying to set expectations. Trying ain't hurt nobody so I guess that's what I'll be doing. Thanks for your advice, appreciate it!

You’d probably go in as a BA, some firms are still hiring, just apply and see

Finally watched The Social Dilemma on Netflix. It didn’t say anything that we didn’t already know about social media and big tech, but it’s still alarming and worth the watch.

Just curious.

Because the staff attorney firm is more prestigious, friend is leaning that way. I’ve been trying to tell them it’s a terrible idea since it’ll be hard to get another associate role after that.
