I understand this is an afterthought, but have firms started thinking what they’re going to do about summer associates if this coronavirus quarantine stretches into June? Hoping they won’t drop us..?

I won’t be taking the bar until next summer, when (hopefully) all of this is just a distant memory

if i had to guess, they won't drop you, they will have you working remotely for at least some of the summer, the experiences and in person socializing component will be heavily curtailed, and they'll still give you offers. but really, this all depends on the virus spread and to some extent on firm finances in an inevitable recession and possible depression.

This, except for the offer part.

Some big firms have affirmed they will pay summers the full amount they expected and give 100% of the class a full time offer. Likely the whole summer program will be remote though, and that truly is a lost experience.
