Don’t feel bad - just take the sick day if you need a mental health day. I mean don’t post on social media all day (not saying you would!) but take a day to rest!

Don’t feel bad! It’s a good use of a sick day.

That’s what sick days are for - when you’re not feeling up to go into work. Take the sick day, if you feel like you need to explain it then just say you aren’t feeling well. You’ll be glad you did!

Take the day. Mental health is health

Advice please, especially if you hire. Going to law school and choosing between UPenn law and Michigan law. Scholarship at Michigan and will graduate with about 90,000 less in debt from Michigan. But Upenn ranked slightly higher and better in the fields I am interested in. Also have a family. So better chance of finding an internship in philly where I don't have to leave my family during the summer. Also thinking about going into politics or back into consulting.
