If I sign an offer letter tomorrow but my start date isn’t till February, and then I decide I don’t want to go to that firm anymore, is there any issue with this?

No, there are not. Logically - at most - you would have to give the same amount of notice as you usually would; if you haven’t started, no-one is going to make you work that. People renege on offers all the time; it’s not great but it happens.

Are you implying that it would be? What would be the problem, A2, in concrete terms?

I needed this. Thanks for the read 😂

Why waste everyone’s time? Don’t sign the offer letter if you aren’t sure about going.

Obviously you go to prison because offer letters bind you to life-long servitude.

Why so many hostile and snide responses in this thread? Let’s keep it civil here. Over in the crypto bowl, people ask “is it too late to buy Bitcoin” once a day and don’t get these kinds of replies.

It's because we're lawyers... 😄

It’s an offer letter. Unless it’s a binding contract, you’re just burning a bridge like others said.

It’s just going to burn that bridge. I would tell them that you are not ready to commit since that sounds like where you are at.
